Connect and Critique grad


Prepare your portfolio for admission into one of our graduate programs by virtually meeting one-on-one with our revered faculty during a Connect and Critique event. Students have the opportunity to receive critical feedback on their artwork and ask questions about our MFA, MS and MST offerings and the application process.



Stay tuned for information about our 2024 event!


Please visit our National Portfolio Day page for other review opportunities or contact with any questions.

Portfolio Requirements

For those interested in having their work evaluated by an RIT College of Art and Design faculty member, the best way to prepare is by observing our graduate portfolio requirements. While no admissions decisions are made during Connect and Critique events, we can accept your portfolio as the visual portion of your RIT application.
