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 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.
