How to Apply

Art Major Applicants

While not required for admission, we encourage applicants intending to choose a fine arts major to submit a portfolio of their work. Limited scholarships are available to students whose portfolio exhibits strong potential.

You will be prompted within your Common Application to submit your portfolio electronically through SlideRoom after indicating your intention to study studio art or art history. The link to SlideRoom will be in the left-hand menu bar within the Common Application. There is an extra $10 SlideRoom portfolio submission fee, in addition to the general $65 application fee.

If you have questions about majors and minors available in fine art and art history, or about the portfolio review process, please contact professor Michelle Erhardt, department chair, at or (757) 594-8905
