Admission Materials Required for Full-Time Programs
1. Portfolio (or Audition)*
The drop-down links below indicate which VanArts programs require a portfolio or audition. Click the program names for specific guidelines.
HOW TO SEND YOUR PORTFOLIO: we prefer 12 pages combined into one PDF, or separate JPEGS in a compressed folder and e-mailed to your admissions advisor (or firstname.lastname@example.org). Alternatively, you can also upload your 12 images to ArtStation and email us a link.
Portfolios/Auditions are not required for admission into our Web Development & Design or Art Foundation programs.
