Graduate Online Portfolio Reviews

The Office of Graduate Admission online portfolio review program allows prospective applicants to submit their preliminary portfolio and statement to receive short feedback from graduate faculty. Although this review does not have an impact on your final admission application, it is an opportunity to refine portfolio materials prior to the January 17, 2017 priority admission deadline. Please review the page below for submission guidelines, participating graduate programs and deadlines.

What is the Graduate Online Portfolio Review?

Prospective applicants have the opportunity to upload 10-15 images & an artist/designer statement via SlideRoom for review by graduate faculty and program representatives beteween September 20 and October 21, 2016. Graduate faculty will review the work and return feedback in early November. Please note that we do not review candidates for final admission during this review process! A final application will still be required, but portfolio review feedback is intended to help prospective students determine what steps they can take to produce a competitive admission application. MICA's graduate faculty provide short, specific feedback to your portfolio. This could include suggestions, critique, responses to specific pieces or simply a general review of your portfolio as a whole. A typical response is approximately 150-200 words.

Submission Guidelines

Starting September 20, 2016 prospective applicants to MICA's graduate community may upload a portfolio of artwork via mica.slideroom.com to the 2016 ONLINE PORTFOLIO REVIEW program. Please note that materials uploaded to the APPLICATION area will not be reviewed at this time. During the upload process, select the program(s) that will review the portfolio. All portfolios must be received by October 21, 2016 in order to receive a response. Please note that SlideRoom requires a $10 submission fee in order to process and store your work for review.
