Admission to the Art Department
Admission to the art department is by portfolio review. Prospective students are asked to bring examples of their work, at which time they will be given a tour of the department and meet with one or more members of the art faculty. Students whose prior experiences in art are limited may be admitted to the department on a provisional basis if they indicate serious interest. Portfolio reviews should be arranged prior to May 1 for admission for the following academic year.
*Students who present their work on or before February 23 will be considered for a renewable $1,000 art scholarship. These art scholarships are offered in addition to the university's extensive scholarship and grant programs.
Portfolio Review/What You Need to Bring
We would like to see representative examples of your recent artwork. Typically we ask to see 8–12 pieces of your best work in any medium (although the number of works may vary depending on your medium). If possible, include several examples of work you have made outside of class assignments. We ask that you also provide us with a digital CD of your work.
