Would you like an example of how human-centered design (HCD) works? We believe that applying to NEIA should be mutually engaging, informative, and enjoyable. You learn as much about yourself as you learn about our school. Like you, we value learning through doing, playing, connecting, and creating—so we place great importance on getting to know you and your passion through discovery (online or on campus). The entire admission process at NEIA is an extended conversation—full of questions, answers, reflections, and ideas.
