  1. The three years I see is if you don’t go to another school and use financial aid within three years, that you will get auto loan discharge only if you meet the discharge criteria. If you have your degree, you wouldn’t qualify, at least for the US Gov loans. https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/closed-school Unless you obtained loans from a different source, in which case you should be able to find that information by searching your specific loans. Best of luck.
  2. https://saci-florence.edu/message-saci-community Did you see this? Looks like they are closing until Spring 2021 at the earliest.
  3. I would ask them what they prefer to be called.
  4. If a college closes, it looks like you can get your transcript through the Department of Higher Education in the state that the school was located in. Outside of the US, perhaps there is something similar where your school was? I would guess the main value lost is in your alumni network ceasing to expand, but that is a minor issue. You still have all of the knowledge and experience from your time there. What kind of jobs are you looking for? I doubt they will ever ask for a transcript.
  5. Funding is not necessarily about valuing the students. Some schools simply have more money to give. Some schools need to give more money to get people to apply. Etc.
  6. Some schools offer a stipend, usually in exchange for teaching/TA-ing/other departmental work; the school would probably advertise this on their website and promotional materials if they did stipends.
  7. Not all schools follow that agreement. This link shows members of CGS. At a cursory glance though, it is not clear if these schools are automatically a part of the April 15th agreement or not. https://cgsnet.org/institutional-members
  8. Of course you are welcome to hang with us visual artists, but you may find more accurate info on the writing boards. https://forum.thegradcafe.com/forum/80-literary/
  9. Just be yourself and do what feels right/comfortable for you.
  10. Anyone know of MFA programs accepting a smaller cohort this year? (Whether it be due to decreased funding or giving their current cohort an extra year of funding.)
  11. Pretty sure grad programs don’t usually offer need-based aid, but maybe someone else can chime in. You’ll probably just be offered unsubsidized loans.
  12. Everything I have read is to submit a cohesive body of work, not something that is all over the place. But I could see showing some other work if you think it is important. edit: When I applied (not to Yale), I only showed one body of work, and my artist statement was specifically for that body of work. This worked for me.
  13. You should look at current grad faculty and current/past students. Also peruse their website.
