Hello and Welcome.
You have reached the Foundations Program at Alfred University, New York College of Ceramics, Alfred, New York!

Here you can find info about happenings, classes, and visitors, as well as practical info for students such as how to register, graduation expectations, and guides to technology and tools.

A special welcome to our newly accepted students.  You will join other bright young artists as they begin their educational journeys at Alfred University’s School of Art + Design and together you will become the 2017-2018 cohort!

Before you arrive on campus, you’ll need to take care of a number of things. The Alfred Foundation Blog will walk you through your first steps. Take some time and read the other headers at the top of this page. Getting Started will give you information regarding registration, materials + tools you’ll need and other advice as you prepare for the fall semester.
