We invite applicants and their families to visit campus:
- get to know us and tour our extensive facilities
- meet faculty members and students
- ask questions and get answers
The Office of Admissions schedules campus tours daily throughout the academic year and on most Saturdays during the fall and spring semesters. Tours are also available during the summer.
Summer Destination Days and fall Open Houses also provide opportunities to learn more about CVPA's programs and facilities.
Portfolio review days
A component of UMassD's fall Open Houses, portfolio review sessions are highly recommended for students entering an undergraduate studio arts program in CVPA.
Review sessions provide applicants with an opportunity to sit down with faculty and talk about their work and their aspirations for their future. During these sessions, faculty members critique students' work, identify the accomplished work and indicate areas in which students might improve their overall portfolio presentation. The sessions are tremendously beneficial and allow both students and faculty an informal opportunity to make meaningful connections.
CVPA will offer portfolio reviews at both fall open houses:
- Saturday, October 14
- Sunday, November 5
To schedule a review: email Jason Loete or call 508.910.6635.
National Portfolio Review Days
CVPA participates in select portfolio review days in our area. Dates and locations to be announced.
