Coronavirus/COVID-19 Response: Temporary Campus-Wide Closure & Community Resources

Dear Community:

We are continuing to follow local, national, and global public health updates and assessing our role in curbing the spread of COVID-19.

We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our facilities until it is safe to reopen. We will reassess the process of reopening them safely and as public health recommendations allow. COVID-19 presents a serious threat to vulnerable populations and we cannot in good conscience continue to risk operating during this period of high exposure and rampant spreading in our region.

We recognize the impact this may have on independent artists and businesses; Pratt is experiencing this in real time as well. We have gathered a list of resources for artists and parents and will update you as more information about our local arts community comes together.

We trust in the creativity and resilience of our shared community and all of us at Pratt look forward to rebounding with you after this crisis passes. In the meantime, you can register & access all of Pratt's online course offerings here.

Stay well and take care.

Adjusted Refund Policy

We have updated our refunds policy.


For those in a position to do so, we are asking you to consider converting your refund into a tax deductible donation as Pratt is in desperate need of financial support as a result of the economic downturn associated with COVID-19. For more information, visit Pratt's FAQ page. Questions should be sent to


Thank you for your patience as we work through an unusually high volume of processing.
