If you are interested in earning a degree in architecture, art, or design, be sure to select a major in the College of Architecture or College of Art on your admissions application. The primary considerations for undergraduate admission are your artistic and intellectual promise and your academic record. You must have graduated from high school, received a recommendation from your teachers or other responsible officials of the school, and taken an appropriate distribution of high school subjects.
1. Build Your Portfolio
Your portfolio is an important part of your application! A portfolio submission of 10-20 works
is required for College of Art applicants and recommended for College of Architecture applicants. It is also required for any
student to be considered for a scholarship.

How Do I Make a Portfolio?
Assembling a portfolio can be challenging, but we want to help!
One of the BEST things you can do to build a top-tier portfolio is to attend a National Portfolio Day event
or schedule a one-on-one portfolio review
through the School. You’ll get great feedback from our faculty, learn how best to improve your portfolio, and we’ll get to know you and your work! See where we’ll be coming that’s near you:

National Portfolio Day: Online
Sam Fox School representatives will be in attendance at this National Portfolio Day event.
National Portfolio Days are events specifically for visual artists, designers, and architects. They provide opportunities for those who wish to pursue an education in the visual arts and architecture to meet with representatives from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Representatives will be available to review your artwork, discuss their programs, and answer questions about professional careers in art and design. High school students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and college transfer students are encouraged to attend. Students interested in studying architecture are welcome to attend and do not need a portfolio in order to have a valuable experience.
