A portfolio review is required for acceptance into the Studio Art program. This requirement applies to all students including: incoming freshmen, transfer students and students changing majors within Kutztown University.


PORTFOLIO REVIEW DATES:

The Portfolio Committee will review portfolios on a rolling basis









Committee decisions will be forwarded to the Kutztown University Admissions Office. Decisions of the Portfolio Committee are final.


BEGINNING FRESHMAN

If you’ll be entering as a Freshman, applying to the Studio Art major in the Fine Arts Department is a two-part process:

(1) You must submit a portfolio to the Fine Arts Department, (2) you also submit an application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for admission to the University.


Your portfolio should consist of a selection of artwork that represents your abilities and experience in visual art. A portfolio gives you an opportunity to demonstrate artistic strengths and interests that may not be adequately reflected in your academic records, and you should choose artwork with this in mind. However, avoid variety for its own sake, as it is often counter-productive. You may include work done for classroom projects, summer and Saturday classes as well as work done independently.


All Studio Art students are required to take a core program of studio courses during the Freshman (foundation) and Sophomore years. The Portfolio Committee reviews your work to determine if you’re sufficiently prepared for these core courses.


EXTERNAL TRANSFERS

If you’re transferring to Kutztown University from another college or university, applying to the Studio Art major in the Fine Arts Department is a two-part process: (1) You must submit a portfolio to the Fine Arts Department, (2) you also submit an application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for university admission. Both applications must include a copy of your transcript.


Your portfolio should demonstrate competence in courses you intend to transfer to Kutztown University (i.e., if you intend to transfer a life drawing course, your portfolio should include drawings from that course; to transfer a photography course your portfolio should include photos, etc.).


INTERNAL TRANSFERS

If you’re already a Kutztown University student in a department other than Fine Art, you should submit a portfolio early in the semester so that your application can be reviewed before advisement and registration for the next semester begins. Your portfolio application must include an up-to-date KU transcript. If you have taken art classes at Kutztown University, please submit examples of the work made in those classes. Supplement with artwork you did at other institutions, high school, or independently. .
