Portfolio Review Submission

Portfolio Review Submission

Please note: Submission information for 2015 applicants will be available in September. Please check back in September for the most up-to-date information.

The architecture faculty are an integral part of the admission process in determining incoming classes. Submission of a portfolio is required.* Applicants are also strongly encouraged to register for an on-campus review as a valuable supplement to the online portfolio submission. Applicants who participate in the On-Campus Portfolio Review will have a brief personal interview with a School of Architecture faculty member about their portfolio submission.  

Applicants must submit their portfolios electronically through SlideRoom and choose between the following two options for review. 

On Campus Portfolio Review

The School of Architecture strongly recommends that applicants visit campus for an on-campus portfolio review. As part of an on-campus review, you’ll come to campus to interview with architecture faculty about your previously submitted portfolio and receive an introduction to the school. You’ll be able to ask questions and engage with faculty, students and staff within the School of Architecture.

Registration will be available in early October.

The School of Architecture requires an online portfolio submission, even if you plan to come to an On-Campus Portfolio Review. Visit SlideRoom to electronically submit your portfolio.

2014-15 On-Campus Portfolio Review Dates:

November 9 (Early Decision Applicants Only)
January 18
January 25

If participating in an On-Campus Portfolio Review:

  • Early Decision applicants should attend the November portfolio review day (registering by November 1) and submit their portfolios electronically by November 1, 12:00 midnight EST.
  • Regular Decision and Transfer applicants can attend either January portfolio review day (registering by January 1) and submit portfolios electronically by January 15, 12:00 midnight EST.

Online Portfolio Review

The School of Architecture provides an online portfolio review option for presenting your portfolio in lieu of visiting campus for an on-campus portfolio review. If you select this option, an admission committee of architecture faculty and students will review your portfolio online. Portfolios must be submitted online by November 1, 12:00 midnight EST for Early Decision applicants or January 15, 12:00 midnight EST for Regular Decision and Transfer applicants. 

Visit SlideRoom to electronically submit your portfolio to the School of Architecture after October 1.

If submitting an Online Portfolio:

  • Early Decision applicants should upload their portfolios electronically by November 1, 12:00 midnight EST.
  • Regular Decision and Transfer applicants should upload their portfolios electronically by January 15, 12:00 midnight EST.

*An On-Campus Portfolio Review is preferred as it includes a faculty interview (this is a separate evaluation from the committee's review of your portfolio submission). The assessment resulting from each option will serve to enhance your application; however, not participating in a portfolio review or interview won't adversely affect your chance of admission.
