Westphal Virtual Portfolio Review Days
Creating a portfolio for college admission naturally comes with a lot of questions—we're here to help take some of the guesswork out of the process. During the Westphal Virtual Portfolio Review Days, students can schedule a one-on-one visit with a Westphal representative to ask questions and present their portfolio before applying. Students should have a digital portfolio prepared for review before their one-on-one meeting that can be accessed by a Westphal reviewer easily. Our Westphal portfolio reviews are informal and informational meetings open to all undergraduate, transfer and graduate applicants.
We will be hosting two portfolio review events this Fall, and students can schedule for individual thirty-minute appointments through our online form.

National Portfolio Day Online
The National Portfolio Day Association has made the decision to move all portfolio days online for the upcoming season. National Portfolio Days are an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to meet with representatives from various colleges and receive valuable feedback regarding their portfolio work.
Westphal Admissions representatives and faculty members will be available for prospective Undergraduate and Graduate students during these events from September – December 2020 to discuss their portfolios virtually. We highly encourage you to register for the online platform before attending a National Portfolio Day. You may set up your registration and learn more about the events by going to the National Portfolio Day website.
If you are unable to attend a National Portfolio Day or a Westphal Portfolio Review Day but would like to receive a portfolio review before applying to Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, we suggest for you to schedule a one-on-one appointment with a Westphal Admissions representative by filling out an appointment form or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
