KIIS Summer 2021 Update
Due to leading health institution/professional projections for Covid-19 vaccine widespread availability in Spring 2021, KIIS proactively revised the line-up of upcoming Summer 2021 programs. Summer programs now have moved to run in late June-July 2021. Those not moved are postponed to Summer 2022. See revised KIIS Summer (July) 2021 programs here. The early application deadline is now January 15, 2021.

If you have been out of college for a long period of time and are unable to obtain a copy of your undergraduate college transcript, you may be exempt from submitting your transcript for undergraduate course credit. However if you are seeking graduate course credit on a KIIS program, you must provide an official copy of your undergraduate transcript. Contact Haley McTaggart with questions.
If you are no longer in contact with your former professors, you may request an employer to complete your recommendation form.
