If you currently do not have a portfolio for review you can select the Portfolio Deferred Option. This is a conditional admission to the college contingent upon you passing your portfolio by the end of  your second semester.  Here you will take the Foundation courses required of all CVPA studio first-year students.  As a Portfolio Deferred Student, the work produced from these classes will help you to form your portfolio. You will need to present 12 pieces for the portfolio. If you pass you will proceed into your degree option and continue your course of study. If you do not pass your portfolio review at that time, you will need to seek another degree option outside the Studio Arts. When filling out your admission application make sure to select this option. If you have any questions about this option please feel free to contact Megan Abajian at or Monica Feria in Admissions at
