Campus Hours + Class Locations
The Studio School campus facilities and labs are open to students Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm with evening and weekend hours by appointment. The Administration Office is open Monday through Friday for all student services until 6pm excluding holidays, school breaks and special events. All classes are held on campus at Los Angeles Center Studios located at 1201 W 5th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017.
Studio School seeks to maintain a nurturing community. Class size for many courses are limited to 12 students placed into sections every semester for craft, production, performance and concentration courses. This allows our faculty to have substantial quality time with every student. Courses that require larger formats to be successful—such as Lecture classes, General Education courses, dance studio classes or Collaboration Labs— may combine two or three sections of students. Program-specific courses are limited to 15 students, and General Education courses are limited to 30 students.
Elective course offerings vary by program and availability. Elective selections may be required for specific concentrations or chosen by students for enhanced learning and skills development. Students who wish to take elective courses that are not required for graduation must request approval from the Dean of Academic Affairs and Program Directors. Students requesting an elective course in any department must meet any prerequisites necessary, be a student in good standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and incur no liability or scheduling adjustments to their primary semester schedule. Students taking elective courses outside their major or department may be
restricted from participating in public performances or special projects associated with an individual course.
Full-Time vs. Part-Time Studies
Students taking fewer than 12 units of study per semester are considered part-time students, while students taking 12 or more units per semester are considered full-time students.
