Campus Tours and Portfolio Reviews

Campus tours include an information session led by an admissions counselor and a facilities tour led by students. Learn more and register.

Portfolio reviews are conducted in the admissions office by appointment during business hours. Reviews are informal and have no bearing on the admission decisions. Students are encouraged to bring original work whenever possible. Sketchbooks, work-in-progress, and work saved digitally are also acceptable for review. Transfer students are encouraged to bring a copy of their college transcript.

Please note that portfolio reviews for students applying for Fall 2018 are limited as the deadline approaches. Generally, we do not schedule portfolio reviews for high school seniors beyond December 1. Instead, we encourage you to apply and contact us with any questions. Portfolio reviews for younger propsective students and pontential transfers are scheduled year-round. Transfer students should bring a copy of their college transcript(s) to the review.
