Portfolio Check FAQ

Do I have a better chance of being accepted to Wayne State University and the art department if I opt to submit images through the WSU admissions process?

A submission of a portfolio is NOT required at this time for admission to the art department. While not mandatory, it is a great way for advisors to get to know you and your work prior to meeting in person. Unlike the academic transcripts and the statement of intent (required for admission to the university), the portfolio does not play a role in the admission review process. 

What type of work should I submit?

You should always submit what you feel to be your best work.  Submitting quality images of  pieces that best represent your skill-set and understanding of different techniques (or mediums) would be the best approach. 

Who will see my work?

Your work will be reviewed by the department art advisors.  In some cases, information may be passed on to members of the faculty in the Art and Art History Department or to committee members that determine scholarships.
