For incoming Fall 2019 freshman, Portfolio Day is scheduled for Saturday, January 26th, 2019. Registration is now closed. For questions, please contact Portfolio Day Coordinator Britta Urness at urness@msu.edu.

High school seniors intending to major in Apparel and Textiles, Graphic Design, or Studio Art BFA programs at Michigan State University are invited to sign up for a portfolio review with department faculty. Portfolio Reviews are held both on campus and via online submission every January. Students who are reviewed will be considered for both direct acceptance to their BFA Program (bypassing the sophomore year review) and for creative and merit-based scholarships. These reviews also offer a chance for students to meet their major faculty, tour the facilities, and meet current students.

It is advised that students apply to MSU prior to their Portfolio Day and fill out the FAFSA form for full consideration for all need-based scholarship awards.

*Admittance to Michigan State University is a separate process from admittance to the BFA major program. All students must be accepted to MSU as stated by the Office of Admissions in order to begin their BFA program and receive scholarships.
