Admissions

  • Portfolio Requirements
    1. A portfolio will be due at the end of each academic year by all Virtual Technology and Design majors.
    2. All portfolios will conform to the following requirements:
      • Only flash drives (USB) will be accepted. The size of the flash drive should not exceed
        4GB. Please note that we will not be able to return flash drives to you.
        • At this time, only 4th year portfolios will be accepted as public web sites.
      • The information on the flash drive must be designed and organized in a logical and creative fashion using applications/formats such as Power Point, HTML, HTML 5, Flash, Director or PDF. If your portfolio is created in a program that requires the host application to run it, you should save the document(s) in a self-running format. For example, if you use Power Point to develop your portfolio, save it as a Power Point Show and include this file on the flash drive. Do not assume we have the same host application as you.
      • Image Formats should be of a common type including TGA, TIF, BMP, PNG & JPG.
      • Video Formats should be of a common type including AVI, MOV, MPG, WMV, MP4.
        Codecs used for the AVI and MOV files should be of the common type supported by the standard installations of Quick Time and Microsoft Media Player. Test your files on a second and third generic computer before completing your submission. If we cannot open your file we cannot evaluate your work!
