School of Film and Television – Animation Department
Undergraduate Admission Portfolio Requirements
Submitting Your Portfolio:
You will not be able to submit your portfolio until after you have submitted your application for admission. Once students submit their application, they will receive an email explaining how to check their status and how to upload a portfolio.
Students applying for admission into the Animation major must submit a portfolio of 10-15 samples of artwork that may include: life drawings, illustrations, cartoons, comic strips, comic books, sketches, paintings, and other visual materials. Please do not send traced pictures or copies of other people’s work.
Animation faculty will review your portfolio and are hoping to gain insight into how you approach creative work and to assess your personal style and artistic interests. Please include a few drawings that demonstrate character personality or that reveal character motivation (a storytelling drawing), as these are especially useful in assessing your skill as an animator.
