Portfolio Admission Requirements

Undergraduate application to the Art & Design Department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell is a two-part process. Incoming applicants need to:

  1. submit an application to Undergraduate Admissions.
  2. submit a portfolio directly to the Art & Design Department. For information on portfolio submissions, please visit the Art & Design website.

Applicants who do not have a portfolio

The Art & Design Department’s goal is to train any student accepted at UMass Lowell. If you are interested in becoming an Art major but do not have a portfolio or if your portfolio is not accepted by the review committee, you can take Drawing I and Art Concepts I. These courses will prepare you for the portfolio application. Should you decide that your strength is in a different field, these courses will count toward Core Curriculum (Arts and Humanities) for non-art majors.
