Admissions Overview

It's not too late to apply for TFA's Fall 2014 start date! Call us today at 312.332.0707 to learn how you can fast-track your admission's decision. 

Tribeca Flashpoint Academy’s intensive, apprenticeship-style degree programs equip students with not only technical skills, but the real-world experience and insider industry know-how they will need to launch their careers in the digital media arts.
 
We find that our most successful students share a few key characteristics: they are passionate about digital media arts, enjoy working in a collaborative and hands-on environment, are receptive to mentorship and coaching, and are willing to work hard to make their dreams a reality. If that sounds like you, we are eager to hear from you.
