Applying to Studio Art or Applied Digital Arts at Kutztown University is a two-step process.

For most students, applying to BFA programs in either Studio Art or Applied Digital Arts is a two-part process.

All incoming freshmen and students transferring from other colleges and universities must apply to the university and submit a portfolio to the Department of Art & Art History. However, currently enrolled KU students transferring from another major within Kutztown University do not need to re-apply to the university, they only need to submit a portfolio following the instructions in step two below.

1. APPLY TO THE UNIVERSITY

Submit an application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

2. APPLY TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ART & ART HISTORY

Submit an online portfolio to KU’s Department of Art & Art History using SlideRoom, an online portfolio submission system ($12 processing fee).*

YOUR PORTFOLIO

Include photos of your 10-20 best artworks.

Your images can include drawings, paintings, photographs, printmaking, sculpture, video, collages, mixed-medium works, etc. You should include some artworks that demonstrate your composition and color skills. If you have three-dimensional pieces, you may include two images of each piece from different angles to better represent the total work.

A faculty committee will review your work to determine if you are prepared for the core foundation courses required during your Freshman and Sophomore years.  The committee’s decision is final and will be forwarded to the Kutztown University Admissions Office (see application deadlines below).

* The use of SlideRoom is not mandatory — students may contact the Department of Art & Art History about alternate methods of submitting.
