Admission to Portfolio Center is based upon a representative portfolio and a broad academic background that supports diversity from applicants who seek to further or redirect their professional interest within the concentration of specific curricula.
Consideration is also given to all applicants who have been actively pursuing professional creative goals and are seeking to redirect their interest. Candidates generally hold a degree from a four-year college or university. Though not a mandatory prerequisite for acceptance, such a background is strongly recommended.
