A portfolio is not required for freshman admission to Photography, Film & Animation, and American Craft programs. The School of Film & Animation and School of American Crafts recommends students submit a portfolio if one is available.
Students applying to RIT choose a specific academic program as part of the admission process. This is important because we offer a variety of academic programs, and requirements differ from one program to another.
We also encourage applicants to indicate a second and third program choice when applying for admission. If RIT is unable to offer you admission to your first choice program, you may be qualified for admission to one of your alternative choices.
