  • National Portfolio Days for Prospective Graduate Students

    The Graduate National Portfolio Days/Information Fairs are for students who have already completed (or are in the process of completing) a bachelor's degree program and are looking to further their education at the graduate level. Graduate Portfolio Days follow the same format as Undergraduate National Portfolio Days and provide prospective graduate students with an opportunity to receive feedback on their portfolios and learn more about each attending school. The event will also give students the opportunity to learn more about curricula, faculty, application procedures, and other aspects of graduate admission. Graduate Portfolio Days are appropriate for those seeking admission to a graduate course of study that requires a portfolio submission. Even if you do not have a completed portfolio to share with the graduate faculty, we invite you to attend to ask questions and gather more information about the various schools.

    Like National Portfolio Days, Graduate Portfolio Days are not examinations or competitions. Attendees should not expect to gain either admission or scholarships to colleges visited during the event. They will have the opportunity to get specific information about portfolio requirements for graduate study at each school visited, receive direct feedback on their artwork, ask questions about the school and program, and learn about the next steps involved in applying for admission. 

    Registration for the 2016 Graduate National Portfolio Day, hosted by Parsons, is not available yet. Please check back in the fall.
