Portfolio Deadline:

March 22, 2021 by 5:00 p.m. in Spori 316

Late Portfolios will NOT be accepted.

Application Process:

  1. Discuss with your faculty mentor if the BFA is right for you. You will also want to get their input on your Grad Plan and your portfolio, both of which are required later in the application. (Note you can apply only twice for the BFA program.)
  2. You must make an alternate Grad Plan for your desired BFA degree. If you would like help, please contact Performing and Visual Arts Academic Advising. You can do this by submitting your grad plan online, or by phoning, emailing, or visiting the advising office.
  3. After your Grad Plan is approved, apply by selecting “Make This My Declared Plan” at the bottom of the Grad Plan. This will lead you to the application questions.
  4. The information for the questions asked in the application can be found in your Grad Plan. You can work with the advising office to get help with any questions you have. 
  5. Remember to email your digital portfolio to the Art Department at before 5 p.m. on the due date. Be sure to fill out the correct information so your portfolio will be correctly linked to your application. No late submissions will be accepted. Please include 8-10 images in JPEG format with each image being no larger than 1 meg or 1024 x 768 pixels. 
  6. After your portfolio and Grad Plan are reviewed, you will receive a notification in I-Plan when a decision is made about your application.
  7. If you have been accepted into the BFA program, you will be able to accept the decision and change your major to the BFA you applied for. If you have been denied from the BFA program, you can contact your faculty mentor for ideas about how you could prepare better if you decide to apply again. (Note you can apply only twice for the BFA program.)
