The online portal offers additional instruction for submitting work. Be sure to submit your portfolio to the correct degree level (undergraduate) and program. For technical assistance, contact . There is a fee for each portfolio submission you make through SlideRoom.


Get Feedback on Your Portfolio Before Submission with In-Person Advisory Reviews

Advisory portfolio reviews are available to students who would like to share their work in person and get advice on strengthening the portfolio prior to the final online submission.
