NOTICE: All on-campus visits and meetings are suspended until further notice due to the Coronavirus. In the meantime, however, all accepted students are invited to email visit@pratt.edu to arrange a one-on-one phone appointment with their admissions counselor. Scheduled in half-hour time slots, these appointments are ideal for learning more and discussing Pratt, its programs, next steps for admitted students (see below), and more. Conversations can be arranged with current students as well by emailing us.

Below is our Accepted Student Video presentation. Questions? Email admissions@pratt.edu.

Congratulations to Our Incoming Class.


Next Steps

Note: while we cannot predict the timeline of the coronavirus, we plan to open on time this fall, whether on campus or online. If we cannot open on campus, we will issue refunds for the housing deposits. 

Deposits are due by December 1 for spring entrants and May 1 for fall or two weeks after the date on your official acceptance letter, whichever is later. Please deposit online using the link below.

Submit Your Deposit(s) Now

Please submit your enrollment deposit and the housing request/deposit online for immediate submission and confirmation. You must submit one and then the other. The non-refundable enrollment deposit is $500 and if you are applying for housing, the housing deposit is $300. Both deposits are due by the deadline. All freshmen are guaranteed housing if they deposit by May 1. Transfer students must submit the tuition deposit ($500) and housing deposit ($300) by May 1 or two weeks after the date on the acceptance letter, whichever is later. Students will be provided with housing as long as space permits. The assignment process for new transfer students begins after June 1 and continues as space becomes available. Once the assignment process begins, the student will be contacted as to whether their request can be met. If requests cannot be met, students will be waitlisted and assigned a space only if and when space becomes available. Historically, new transfer students who deposit before June 1 have been housed, however, there is no guarantee and depositing early makes being assigned more likely. At all times, students may make use of the variety of off-campus resources to help in identifying off-campus alternatives. Unless assigned, a student’s housing deposit is fully refundable.

If you are unable to submit your deposit online, you may scan and email your form(s) to cpaisley@pratt.edu or mail by postal service to Pratt Institute, Office of Admissions, 200 Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11205. We strongly discourage mailing deposits, however,  because of delays receiving mail.

To deposit online, you must have your Pratt ID number. Your Pratt ID is included in your acceptance letter and acceptance email.

If you deposit online, you will receive a confirmation immediately, and your deposits will be expedited so that you receive the next set of materials for enrolled students, your OneKey login, (and for international students, the I-20).

International Students:  In order to receive your visa, you must request the I-20 from Pratt.  Instructions for doing this will be emailed to you upon receiving your deposit(s).   


Do you have questions or want to arrange a one-on-one phone meeting to discuss more? Email admissions@pratt.edu now.


Deferring to Another Term: If you decide to defer your enrollment/application to the following term or year, please use our electronic form after reading the information below for freshmen and transfers.  Freshmen: please note that any presidential merit scholarship you have received for your previously accepted term will be deferred unless you choose to take courses during the year at another college.   In that case you would be a transfer student with different criteria and different scholarships. The financial aid office will need to recalculate your need-based aid if you are a US citizen or permanent resident who submitted the FAFSA. Note that you must submit your enrollment deposit prior to deferring or requesting that your application be forwarded to another term.  You will need your Pratt Onekey information (sent after depositing) to fill out the deferral form. Submitting your enrollment deposit secures your place in the program for the term to which you defer or forward your application. We are unable to defer or forward applications for students who do not submit the required enrollment deposit of $500. Requests for deferral must be submitted before August 1.

Transfer Students: Transfer students may not defer but can request to have their application forwarded to the next term or semester using the electronic deferral form above.  Note that if additional courses are taken, students may not qualify because of the sequence of courses for the semester.  Questions should be directed to the transfer counselor at transadm@pratt.edu. A condition of your deferred acceptance is that you maintain your current transfer status. If you enroll in another institution of higher education (college, university, art and design school, etc.) during the next year, you will lose your current transfer status. In this situation, your forwarded application to the newly requested term would need to be withdrawn, and we would then reconsider your application as a regular transfer student along with all other transfer applicants for that term. If you plan to enroll in another school during this time, you must immediately contact Chris Paisley at cpaisley@pratt.edu to adjust your admissions status and application.

Freshmen: You may request to defer for one time for one year as long as you do not enroll full-time in another accredited degree-granting program. To defer,  submit our electronic form above, as well as your deposit.  Submitting your enrollment deposit secures your place in the program for the term to which you defer. (We are unable to defer students who do not submit the required enrollment deposit of $500.)  A condition of your deferred acceptance is that you maintain your freshman status. If you enroll in another institution of higher education (college, university, art and design school, etc.) during the next year, you will lose your freshman status. In this situation, your deferred admission would need to be withdrawn, and we would then reconsider your application as a transfer student along with all other regular transfer applicants for that term. If you plan to enroll in another school during your deferred year, you must immediately contact Chris Paisley at cpaisley@pratt.edu to adjust your admissions status and application.

Withdrawing Your Application: Should you choose to completely withdraw, please email Chris Paisley at cpaisley@pratt.edu
