Submit Your Portfolio

Learn about portfolios and their role in the admission process.

Portfolio Feedback Days are an opportunity to meet with faculty, learn about your chosen major and concentrations, and take a tour of the school. SADAH faculty will look at your portfolio with you and give advice on which pieces to keep and what to work on. They also will talk with you about your artistic and professional goals and current art-related activities like exhibits, clubs or awards. This is a private session.

Students must participate in a Portfolio Feedback Day to be considered for any SADAH merit scholarships, which vary in amount up to the full cost of tuition. Portfolios should be submitted as early as possible for scholarship consideration. 

Admission decisions are not made during Portfolio Feedback Days.

SADAH holds several on-campus Portfolio Feedback Days each year. Attendance is highly recommended, but not required, for admission to SADAH. Register for an upcoming session:
