Entrance into the Department of Art’s undergraduate program is selective and competitive. The Application must be received and accepted before the term the student intends to enter Oregon State University. No application is required for students planning on majoring in art history.

An application for the OSU Department of Art will include a visual portfolio of the applicant's creative work. The portfolio should attempt to depict the best possible representation of the applicant’s work produced over recent years. It should contain the highest quality images (35mm slide or digital) that best represent the applicant and his or her abilities. The review committee will assess the application packet and determine the scope and depth of the applicant’s creative activity, how the applicant expresses or communicates his or her ideas and impressions of the world, how the applicant solves problems, thinks creatively and presents solutions, and the kinds of things that interest the applicant and arouses his or her curiosity.

Graphic Design: Admission into the Graphic Design option is selective and competitive. Students wishing to enter the program must undergo a portfolio review at the beginning of the sophomore year. Students first complete ART 100/199, ART 101, ART 115, ART 117, ART 120, ART 121 and Art 122 during the freshman year and take ART 225, Introduction to Graphic Design, during the fall term of the sophomore year. ART 225 (offered in the fall only) is designed to prepare students for the portfolio review at the end of fall term. Students will be selected to fill a limited number of openings in the graphic design program based on performance in ART 225 and on the portfolio review. Academic performance in other courses may also be taken into account. (Students transferring to OSU must enroll in ART 225 prior to taking part in the portfolio review. Transfer students should consult with an adviser in the Art Department before registering for OSU courses.) Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to the Graphic Design option may reapply one time the following year. Contact the department for specific details.
