Hey everyone!
I know that applying seems intimidating but don’t get scared!
I’ve gathered all the information you need from our main website www.bergen.org that you need to apply to our program.

Here is a link to admissions page. You will find the application and requirements here…
But the big question I’m always asked is about our portfolio.
I figured I’d post it here on our site to make things easier for those with questions.
Let me know if you need any other info… drop me an email 🙂
