Portfolio Requirements

Submit a portfolio that gives us a sense of you, your interests, and your willingness to experiment, explore, and think beyond technical skills. There is no one “right way” to construct a portfolio—you choose what to present. Visit Portfolio Requirements by Degree Program for more detailed information regarding portfolios.

We strongly encourage you to meet with us on campus, online, or at one of our events for individualized feedback about your portfolio.

The portfolio you submit for admission is the one that we will evaluate for merit scholarship. View our portfolio preparation guide for more information.

General Portfolio Guidelines

  • Show us 10–15 of your best and most recent works.
  • Use your portfolio to showcase your interests, skills, and creative potential.
  • You may show us work created across media or focus entirely in one medium.
  • Work can range from observational to abstract.
  • We have no media-specific limitations nor do we present portfolio assignments.

Advice for Developing a Merit Scholarship Portfolio

  • Be bold, experiment, take risks, and be inventive.
  • Show us what makes you different, and the things about which you are passionate.
  • Build a portfolio of thematic work—show multiple pieces that share similar ideas, techniques, or media.
  • Mesh great ideas—political, environmental, and even social concepts within your work.
  • Think about your portfolio as a gallery show you are curating.
  • Highlight work that is consistently expressive, curious, and thought-provoking.

How to Submit Your Work

Upload your work electronically through SlideRoom, which you will access through SAIC's member screen within the Common Application under the Portfolio section.

MUST be .pdf

No more than 1mb per .pdf. PDFs may be broken down into multiple documents.

Artist's Statement

Your statement should tell us about you and your art-making. Include information about what inspires you. What does your artistic process look like? Share why you are interested in utilizing certain materials, and in which exhibitions you have participated. How have other activities or experiences contributed to the making of your work?

While there are no word count limitations, we recommend a 250–500 word statement. Construct your essay with care, and pay attention to your grammar and spelling.

If you are applying to the Bachelor of Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Writing, your statement also needs to address how you imagine a studio arts environment will impact your writing practice.

You may submit your artist's statement via the Common Application (within the member-specific questions) or through your SlideRoom ePortfolio submission.

Transcripts

You will need to submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended, along with an official copy of your high school, GED, or equivalent transcript.

Your counselor may submit through the Common Application, Parchment, email or mail (School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Undergraduate Admissions, 36 S. Wabash, suite 1201, Chicago, IL  60603).

If your high school diploma(s), certificate(s), or transcript(s) are in a language other than English, please include officially translated transcripts. We recommend students consider and use credential evaluation services that are members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

In order to determine how your past credits will transfer, you may send us “unofficial” transcripts for counseling purposes.  In order to receive credit for those courses, we will need official copies of your transcripts.

Test Scores

U.S. residents, and international students whose first language is English or who have studied in an English-language school for 4+ years or earned 12 or more semester hours of college credit from an English-language university are not required to submit ACT, SAT or language assessment scores. If you believe your scores provide additional insight into your academic abilities, please feel free to submit them.

International students who do not meet the above criteria need to submit a language assessment from any of the following and must meet the designated minimum scores:

Letter of Recommendation

Submit one letter of recommendation written by an instructor or other professional who can evaluate your motivation, commitment, maturity, and potential to succeed at SAIC. If you are currently not in school and cannot locate an instructor or guidance counselor, you may ask an employer or an individual capable of assessing you from a critical perspective.

Your recommender should reference your full name and date of birth, and may submit in the following ways:

  • Electronically through the Common Application
  • Email: ugadmiss@saic.edu
  • Mail: School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Undergraduate Admissions, 36 S. Wabash Ave, suite 1201, Chicago, IL 60603

Transferable Credits

SAIC has liberal transfer policies to allow you to make the most of the academic experiences you bring to campus. We will accept up to a maximum of 60 transfer credits for courses in which you have received a grade of "C" or better from an accredited university or college.

  • Official transcripts will be evaluated from the prior college(s) you attended to determine the Liberal Arts or Art History credits that will transfer.
  • Studio credits that may transfer will be determined by evaluating your transcripts and your portfolio.
  • Health, nutrition, or physical education credits will not transfer.
