Transfer Applicants

The expectations for the portfolio vary depending on the level the applicant aspires to be placed in. While a transfer into second year requires only an indication of understanding of the criteria listed below, a transfer into third year requires mastery of them.

All transfer applicants are required to submit a portfolio conveying the range of work completed in earlier programs. Transfer credits for Interior Architecture coursework will be awarded based on portfolio evaluation. Submit 10-15 pieces of your best work including a range of coursework and/or personal projects.

Things to consider:

  1. Organize and label projects by course, sorted from earliest to most recent course taken.
  2. We need to see the specific work you did in each course.
  3. Don’t overemphasize hand drawing. It is not important for determining transfer placements.
  4.  Clearly identify group projects and identify the work you did in these group projects.
  5. Submit your portfolio early so that you can be considered for the Woodbury Prize.
