The School of Visual Communication requires a portfolio review for admission to the program. During your portfolio review, we would like to learn more about your creative process and review any examples of creative work you can provide. While we would like to see examples of your work, we also want to talk with you about your goals and be sure this is the right program for you. This is also an opportunity for you to learn about us! You can sign up for a portfolio review when you register for OHIO Discovery Day on September 25, October 2, or October 16.
