Graduate Preparatory Courses

Give yourself an edge. Hone an essential skill before you begin a graduate (or undergraduate) program of study. Pratt’s Grad Prep courses support your academic success with foundational classes curated and taught by Pratt’s distinguished faculty.

This program features small, interactive classes, real-time instruction (either in-person, or on Zoom), free access to software for remote use, and free access to designated campus labs. 


Architecture students entering a degree program (undergraduate/graduate) benefit from taking these foundational classes. Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design (GAUD)

ELL Portfolio

English language learners (ELL) who do not satisfy Pratt’s TOEFL requirements for undergraduate, or graduate, admission utilize this program to meet Pratt’s English requirements for admission. Through a portfolio review of completed class assignments, ELL students may either increase in level towards fulfilling TOEFL requirements, or earn a TOEFL exemption. In addition, students who successfully complete both courses receive the ELL Portfolio Certificate.
