The sophomore portfolio review is for the art & design student who will have completed (including current classes) 15 credit hours of selected core art & design coursework. The review is intended to provide feedback on the student’s artistic growth progress. At the review we will be assessing: drawing and compositional skills, presentation skills, ability to discuss and exhibit work and the student’s level of knowledge about current professional activity in his or her program area.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 in these art and design courses is required to be eligible for participating in sophomore portfolio review. Passing the sophomore portfolio review is a prerequisite to enrolling in junior level courses.
