NCAD Application Portfolio

Home / NCAD Application Portfolio

NCAD requires all applicants to submit a portfolio consisting of 10 digital images of your artwork to be considered by the Admission Committee. The portfolio allows the committee to gain an understanding of your interests, experience, and potential. Portfolios must be submitted to admissions@ncad.edu.

For general artwork, we recommend scanned images rather than photos for best resolution. If including sketchbook pages, we recommend combining them into a single PDF. Maximum file size for individual images is 16MB. Applicants are encouraged to downsize images to 72 dpi for image size constraints. Acceptable file types are .jpg, .png, or .pdf.

For more information on portfolio submission and preparation please contact NCAD’s admissions.
