Undergraduate
Admissions

Pratt is a creative community of artists, architects, designers, and thinkers—people with big ideas scribbled in the margins and sketches crowding our papers. We come from all walks of life and all over the world to think, make, and work together. Your journey to Pratt starts here, with our admissions team. We’re here to help you navigate the application process and get to know the people and places that make us uniquely Pratt.

How to Apply

Pratt’s applications are all online. If you’re applying to start as a new, first-year student, you’ll apply through the Common App. If you’re a transfer student, use the Pratt Institute Application, instead.
