The IHSAE is a strong supporter of ECP/Summer Intensives
There is no denying the positive impact Early College programs have on students. With your involvement in IHSAE, please consider offering students an ECP/Summer Intensive as part of your school's sponsorship. It’s a great way to connect with students on your campus and gain added exposure for your visual arts program.
ECP/Summer Intensive Selection Date:
Saturday, February 23rd, 2019
The IHSAE has designated this time exclusively for our college sponsors offering ECP/Summer Intensives to be in the gallery to make their selections.
The IHSAE utilizes a “draft style” order to conduct student selections based on the level of sponsorship. This is done in an effort to provide a fair and level playing field for all participating art schools, colleges and universities. Selection order will be provided to each school at the selection event. Please be advised, admissions representatives will be responsible for making all student selections.
In the event a representative cannot attend and you’d like to have an IHSAE representative make your selections, please contact John Zilewicz at firstname.lastname@example.org
