Graduate Admissions

Graduate Portfolio Days

Graduate National Portfolio Day events are held from October to December across North America. Prospective MDes in Integrative Design and MFA in Art candidates can explore the nation’s best colleges of art and design — all in one place — and meet with Stamps School Graduate Program faculty, who will provide portfolio reviews and discuss our unique programs.

Attendees should not expect to gain either admission or scholarship to colleges visited during the event. They will have the opportunity, however, to get specific information about the quality, depth and consistency of portfolio requirements required at the graduate level from each school visited; direct feedback on their artwork; and the next steps for applying for admission. All Portfolio Day events are free, open to the public and do not require pre-registration. Learn more about The National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) at
