Entrance Requirements


The BFA is a focused pre-professional degree, leading to careers or graduate study in art and design. Students wishing to pursue the BFA must apply for entrance into the program by submitting a portfolio of digital images and a letter of application that describes their goals and interests in the fields of art and design. Students may apply as entering first year students, or in subsequent semesters, but they must pass the BFA Entrance Portfolio Review before completing 75 hours of Art and Design classes. At the time of application into the BFA, they must identify their concentration in one of the three areas: Studio Art, Graphic Design or Art Education. Digital Portfolio: Students will submit digital images of 8-10 original artworks that successfully incorporate principles and elements of 2D and 3D art and design. These examples should provide evidence of competency with tool usage, measuring, material handling, and presentation. Within this portfolio, students should include 3-5 analytical drawings demonstrating basic knowledge of perspective and proportion.
