PORTFOLIO OF CREATIVE AND/OR SCHOLARLY WORK: Important Information & Tips

As an Integrated Studies candidate, you have a great deal of leeway, provided you satisfy the basic requirements. Here are some additional tips:

● Be sure to combine the works into a single PDF.
● Include an additional COVER PAGE with a list of the portfolio's contents.
● ALL written and visual work you submit must be original, and should reflect who you are as a budding artist/scholar. Please do not include work that was co-authored or co-created with others.
● You may include samples of work you have done for a class, or documentation of creative work. You may submit new work, but it is not required to generate work specifically for this application.
● You may include an excerpt from a larger work. If you do so, please indicate that, and any other notation, on the COVER PAGE.
● If you choose to include a writing sample of a paper for which you received a grade, give us a clean draft (i.e., do not include your instructor's remarks or the grade).
● Longer is not necessarily better. Keep individual writing samples to under 5 pages. Leave us wanting more.
● Give thought to the selection and progression of the items you include. Include items that exhibit a range of theme, style, etc. Engage us.
