When Do I Submit A Portfolio?
Once accepted to the University, students can sign up for one of the portfolio review sessions or mail their portfolio at any time. Portfolios must be reviewed before the student can start classes at Seton Hill.
What Takes Place In A Portfolio Review?
One or two faculty members review the student's work to determine skill level, and contribution to the department. If the review is taking place in person, the student has the opportunity (and are expected) to discuss the work that they are presenting.
What Is The Difference Between A Portfolio Review And A Scholarship Review?
All art students must have a portfolio review for admission to the Art Program.
The Seton Hill Art Program has a scholarship that is awarded to students who display excellent artistic ability, as decided by the Art Program faculty. An art portfolio review is required as part of the application process for this scholarship. Having a portfolio reviewed for a scholarship also satisfies the portfolio review requirement for admission to the Art Program - your portfolio does not need to be reviewed twice.
