AAE Supplemental Admissions Information


Thank you for your interest in the Art and Art Education Program at Teachers College. The Teachers College Application Form for Admission can be found online at

In addition to the general application requirements, the Art and Art Education Program requires Supplemental Materials to complete your application for admission. These Supplemental Materials will give us a broader picture of your qualifications and interests. Some of the Supplemental Materials are to be submitted electronically along with the Online Application Form, while others must be mailed directly to the Art and Art Education program office. It is essential that you submit the correct materials to the correct office. Failure to do so could result in serious delays in the processing of your application.

For a description of the required Supplemental Materials and information on where to submit them, please click on the link below.

  Art Education Supplemental Materials

Please read the Supplemental Materials Guidelines carefully. Should you have remaining questions after you read the document, please feel free to contact the Art and Art Education Program Office at (212) 678-3360.

Please note that due to recent changes in New York State law, the GRE will also be required for all students entering teacher preparation programs from fall 2016 onward. Please visit the Office of Admissions website for the latest information. The GRE is not required for applications to other degree programs.

We look forward to hearing from you and reviewing your application.
