Admissions decisions are individualized and take into account all aspects of the applicant's background.
Applications are considered on a rolling basis following receipt of all admissions requirements. We recommend that students complete the admissions process prior to February 15, 2013, the priority scholarship deadline. After February 15, scholarship and admission will be given based or availability.
What you show us in your portfolio is entirely up to you. You can choose to submit a variety of media or concentrate on just one. Your portfolio is all about you so it should be as original as you are!
A portfolio for admission into CVA may include (but is not limited to) drawing, painting, graphic design work, digital work, photography, printmaking, sculpture, websites, video and documentation of installation. You may either submit a variety of media or concentrate on one. Your portfolio should include 12 – 20 examples of artwork.
Your portfolio can be reviewed on campus, sent through the mail or reviewed online.
Our portfolio reviews are not critiques. They provide an opportunity for the admissions team to see your work up close and to hear more about your interests and your creative process.
