The process for getting into the Animation program, just like any other, requires gathering up the appropriate materials and information before stepping in.
First thing you'll want to do is attend an orientation/school tour so you can get comfortable with the surroundings. It's not a requirement but I highly recommend it!
Second, get in touch with an administrator to look at your portfolio. This is essential for earning one of many scholarship opportunities straight from the school. If you're a transfer student, they may request pieces from courses well over 2 years ago. If you're fresh out of high school, show the admin your most current and completed works!
Next, fill out the appropriate paperwork/admission forms for acceptance. This process isn't that difficult, and you can always ask the administration/counselors for help. There's no wrong in asking!
Once your portfolio has been examined and forms sent to the admissions office, you will be on your way to getting accepted into the program.

I personally am completely in love with this school and everything it has to offer. The campus centers are great. We have a nurse and counselor on staff that students can see for free! Also, we have student life, which provides all kinds of cool things like trips to see the Red Wings play and weekly shopping trips for people who live on campus without cars. The bookstores are awesome. They have just about anything you could possibly need for any class on campus. Not to mention the studios are fantastic.

It's pretty strict! (Although it's not hard to get away with things like drinking and drugs on or around campus.) The big thing is how strict they are about letting people into buildings. You have to show your ID to get pretty much anywhere on campus. The Taubman center is completely inaccessible if you don't have a school ID or someone to sign you in to campus. The Ford campus, however, is pretty lax, especially considering all of the buildings except for the ACB are connected and you can get into any of them via the tunnels. Don't try to get in to the ACB without an ID or someone to sign you in, though - it's not happening!
