You can present your portfolio any time before or during the application process, but your application isn't complete until you've done so. All students are required to submit a portfolio. The exceptions are students entering Furniture Design, Art History with an academic focus, Collaborative Design, and Interior Design (please note that while Interior Design students do not submit a portfolio, they must submit an Observation Exercise).
Private portfolio reviews
To schedule a portfolio review, call 616.451.2787 or 800.676.2787. Our admissions team will sit down to talk with you about the work you've done and what you'd like to do in the future.
We always prefer face-to-face portfolio reviews, but we understand that it is not always possible. If you can't present your portfolio in person, contact our Admissions office at 616.451.2787 or 800.676.2787. You may also submit an electronic portfolio here.
