12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Graduate Portfolio Days are for students who have already completed a bachelor's degree program and are looking to further their education at the graduate level. They follow the same format as National Portfolio Days but provide prospective MFA, MArch, and MS students an opportunity to receive feedback on their portfolios. It is appropriate for those seeking admission to a graduate course of study that requires a portfolio submission. These sessions also give students the opportunity to learn more about curricula, faculty, application procedures, and other aspects of Parsons' graduate programs.

Like National Portfolio Days, Graduate Portfolio Days are not an examination or a competition. 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, direct feedback on their artwork, and the next steps involved in for applying for admission.

Registration is now open for the Eastern National Graduate Portfolio Day hosted by Parsons.
