ADMISSIONS INFORMATION

If you are applying to the Visual Arts Program directly from high school, you will be accepted based on your grade-point-average, a digital portfolio assessment is required and you can download the submission requirements HERE.

As a transfer student or change of major, admission to the Visual Arts program requires a portfolio assessment. You must make an appointment with the Chair of Visual Arts for a portfolio interview. A typical portfolio consists of 6 - 12 works in a range of media. The portfolio must contain examples of work done from direct observation and for that we recommend life drawing example(s) or a self-portrait. To arrange a portfolio appointment, please email mlederich@brocku.ca or call 905-688-5550 ext. 3214.
