Studying Abroad

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

My daughter is planning to apply to the US for Undergraduate studies in Graphic Design. Though she has prepared a portfolio, she has not taken the SAT test. Is she eligible to apply?    
—Saloni Shah

The portfolio and school grades are the most important admission requirements for the BFA (Bachelors of Fine Arts) in Graphic Design program in the US. Most universities like: RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) and MICA (Maryland Institute College of Arts) require SAT or the ACT test as a part of BFA in Graphic Design application. However, colleges like CalArts, SAIC (School of Art Institute Chicago), Parsons New School of Design and Pratt do not require the SAT or ACT as a part of BFA in Graphic Design application. A good SAT or ACT score will always be beneficial to your application even if it is not required by the college.  If you have the time to prepare for the test, it is recommended that you take it.

I have a US passport and file my Income Tax returns in the US. My daughter is applying for undergraduate admissions with financial aid.  What are the financial documents that I will need to apply for financial aid?
—Jeremy Brown

New freshman applicants who are U.S. Citizens, Permanent Residents, or eligible non-citizens can be considered for both scholarship and federal financial aid with successful on time submission of the:

If parents are divorced, separated, or were never married, complete a Noncustodial Profile (NCP) and submit the accompanying 2015 federal tax return including all schedules and W2s to IDOC. The NCP is available on-line after the student has completed the CSS Profile.
If parents own a business or farm, include a copy of the most recent partnership or corporate tax return.

I have completed my BA. Economics (Honours) from PDPU University. I am interested in the Masters in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation program at USC in Los Angeles. Is it mandatory for students to take the GMAT or GRE?
—Kushal Patel

The Masters in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation program at USC (University of Southern California) does NOT require the GMAT or GRE score as a part of the application process. However, please note that other colleges in the US may require the GMAT or GRE scores. Also, you will require to submit your TOEFL or IELTS score for the Masters in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation to USC.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
