Art Department FAQ's
Anyone 18yrs or older qualifies for admission to East Los Angeles College. People under 18 qualify if they have graduated from high school or have passed the California High School Proficiency test. High school students may concurrently enroll at ELAC with the consent of their parents and high school and get an early start on their college education and pay no tuition.
If you are an international student on an F-1 visa or want to apply as an F-1 visa student, please contact the International Student Office. There is a different application process for international students than for U.S. students.
Our introductory courses are open to all ELAC students. Some upper level courses require introductory pre-requisites. All pre-requisites are listed in the course catalog for each course description.
If you are interested in taking art classes at ELAC you need to be enrolled as a student first.
