2020 DMAA Online Application
Digital Media Arts Academy 2020 Application (for the 2020-2021 school year)
The REGULAR ACTION application is due by midnight on or before February 14, 2020. This is the final day to apply for the DMAA. Students applying at that time will be notified after March 1, 2020.
All applications received on or before January 17, 2020, will be considered for EARLY ACTION. Early action applicants will be notified of acceptance by February 7th.
There is no special consideration given to students who apply prior to the early action deadline and no requirement that early action applicants accept their admission if offered. Early action simply allows applicants and their families to learn their acceptance status about a month sooner than regular action applicants.
