Students are strongly encouraged to check with their home institutions about the number of accepted transfer credits. Upon completion of the program, students may request a Hampshire College transcript.

Residency Requirement

Because of the intensive nature of the program, all participants are strongly recommended to reside on campus for the duration of the course. The program fee includes full residency, plus course materials and fees. Students who don't require residency should contact after submitting their applications.

If you are a Hampshire student interested in seeking financial aid, you should indicate your intent on the application. The financial aid office will be notified directly and will determine if you have any remaining 2014-2015 eligibility for federal grant and loan funds. Students from other colleges should check with their home institutions regarding available financial aid.

Health Insurance

Please note that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all students to carry health insurance. Upon acceptance to the Institute for Curatorial Practice Summer Academic Program, you will be asked to provide proof of insurance or required to purchase temporary coverage that could increase the overall program cost.
