Pratt Institute, SCPS reserves the right to make changes to any of the information listed in this website when necessary. We make every effort to notify students of any changes in a timely fashion; however, courses are often cancelled as late as the day of the first meeting. For this reason, it is vital that we have the students’ correct phone number and email address on file at all times. Please visit our website for the most up-to-date information regarding course details.


Students may receive CEUs for any successfully completed course upon request. Pratt adheres to the industry formula of awarding 1 CEU for every 10 classroom hours awards 1 CEU.

Its intent is to act as the default for the vast majority of our Intellectual Property issues.

Age appropriateness is required in all classrooms. Adult classes require all students be 18+ years of age by the first day of class. The PreCollege Program requires all students to be 16-18 years of age by the first day of class. Many courses and certificates do not require formalized entrance requirements; however, advanced courses may list prerequisites or equivalent experience requirements. When required these are listed in the course descriptions. Certificate students, in particular, must be careful to follow specific requirements where necessary.


Pratt Institute community members are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. Prohibited behavior includes:

  • Disruptions that interfere with the learning environment
  • Threats of safety to self and others
  • Foul or obscene language or gestures
  • Destruction of property or theft
  • Disrespect of others

Student status is a privilege subject to certain expectations. Pratt Institute reserves the right to suspend or dismiss students at any time for conduct that is deemed detrimental to the Pratt community or that violates laws of local authorities.
