Submitting your application
Please complete your application online.
Submitting your portfolio
Programs will require portfolios to be submitted either by mail or online. Please see the Specific Program Requirements section for the program to which you are applying and use the preferred submission method. If you submit your application online, please do not send a hard copy via mail.
The Office of Admissions will return mailed portfolios only if you send a prepaid self-addressed package for return mailing. Be sure to complete and include any of the necessary forms required by your service provider. Prepaid mailing labels and packages from USPS, UPS, FedEx, FedEx Ground, and FedEx International are all acceptable. If necessary, your local post office will be able to provide you with an estimate for the return postage amount.
Mailed portfolios should include a completed Portfolio Information Form (pdf). The Portfolio Mailing Label (pdf) should be printed, completed and securely attached to the outside of your portfolio to guarantee proper review of your materials.
If mailing your portfolio, please consider how your work will travel in the mail and be handled by the review committee. The Office of Admissions cannot guarantee that supplemental portfolio materials arriving after the Regular Deadline will be considered with the original portfolio submission.
Please note that portfolios will not be returned until after May 1st.
Submitting your transcripts/academic records
Official transcripts should be sent directly from your school to the Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope or by a secured electronic system such as Docufied or Parchment. International applicants please view the international applicant page.
Submitting letters of recommendation
Letters of recommendation should be submitted online through our online application or they can be mailed to the Office of Admissions. Please only use one method. The online application method allows you to see when your recommendations have been received and to send email reminders to your recommendors.
Submitting your artist statement
The artist statement should be uploaded and submitted with your online application and should also be included in SlideRoom for programs that request it.
