Portfolio Guidelines for a College of Fine Arts Scholarship

Once you have been accepted into the university you will be sent a link to submit your portfolio and other application materials.

Student Works

3-15 arts technology works that showcase your existing skills and talents with technology and/or making art pieces. Applicants are encouraged to focus their portfolio towards one of the intended concentrations of study (Video Production, Visual Media, Audio Engineering and Production, Live Events Technology) but a small selection of pieces from other concentrations is also welcomed as it shows breadth.

Sketches, drawings, paintings, while not digital artwork, are still excellent examples as they allow reviewers to see your artistic eye. On another note, programming and/or web design and development pieces, while not traditional art, are also excellent examples as they allow reviewers to see your existing technical knowledge. Quality over quantity of pieces shown is appreciated.

*If more than 15 pieces are submitted, only the first 15 will be reviewed.
