Students applying to the Creative Writing program are notified of their admission decision on a rolling basis. All materials must be received in order for a decision to be rendered. Students are first reviewed academically for admission to the college and if a student is found academically admissible, their Creative Writing materials are reviewed by the department.
It is possible for an applicant to be found admissible to the college, but not admissible to the Creative Writing program. These students are offered admission to any other Liberal Arts and Science major, including Undeclared. If a student chooses to enroll through another Liberal Arts and Science major, they may reapply to the Creative Writing program internally in their first two years as a student.
Currently enrolled Purchase College students should adhere to different application deadlines. In order to apply internally to the Creative Writing program, please visit the Humanities Divisional Office, Room 2020 in the Humanities Building or contact the office by telephone at 914-251-6550.
