Post-Foundation Portfolio Review

All fine arts majors (BFA) and art majors (BA/BS) are required to take a Post-Foundation Portfolio Review (PFPR). The review will take place after completion of the studio foundation courses (Art 102Q1 or 111, 112, 114). Passing the portfolio review is required to enroll in 400-level art courses and graduate with a degree in Art.

The Post-Foundation Portfolio Review occurs on the third Friday at the beginning of each semester. An informational meeting will be held a week before the review for participants and anyone interested in learning more about the portfolio review process.

Please check the bulletin boards on the second floor of the Arts and Communications Center for updates and current participant lists.  Please contact the art department if you believe you should be taking the PFPR but are not on our list.  It is the student's responsibility to make sure they are on the list.
