Applicants to NCAD are required to submit a portfolio of original work. Please review the NCAD Academic Catalog or this web site for descriptions outlining what would be considered appropriate work to submit, based on your program of interest. Please fill out the following, and submit your portfolio as individual image files.
  • NCAD requires all applicants to submit a portfolio consisting of 10 digital images of your artwork to be considered for Admission Committee The portfolio allows the committee to gain an understanding of your interests, experience, and potential. Portfolios must be submitted as a series of digital images via NCAD’s online application process. For more information on portfolio submission and preparation please contact NCAD’s admissions department.

    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 1MB. Applicants are encouraged to downsize images to 72 dpi for image size constraints. Acceptable file types are .jpg, .png, or .pdf.

    We no longer accepts submissions of physical portfolios.
