Portfolio Review Day

Portfolio Day January 20

Are you an entering first-year student for the 2020 Fall semester? Are you interested in pursuing one of our architecture or design programs?*

If so, join us for the Jefferson Portfolio Review Day on January 25, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Join us on the Jefferson, East Falls campus for our Portfolio Review Day Event! Bring a hard copy or electronic portfolio for review by our design faculty. You will receive constructive feedback from our seasoned pros, and upon completion of the take home design challenge, due on February 7 - have a chance to win a full tuition scholarship.


Optional tours of the campus will be offered at the conclusion of the event. Parents are welcome to attend and will have a chance to learn about our programs and meet faculty.

Scholarship Requirements

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, students must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be an incoming first-year student. Transfer students are not eligible to participate.
  • Must submit an application for admission and all supporting materials, postmarked by January 25, 2020.
  • Must participate in all of the required activities on the event date.
  • Must provide a portfolio on the day of the event. Portfolios can either be in printed (hard copy) or digital (electronic) format. If digital, please have your portfolio saved on a flash drive in jpeg images and bring it with you on the day of the event.
  • Submit the take home design challenge by February 7, 2020.


Please note that your work is of the most value to us. Investing time and money into the design or “look” of your portfolio is unnecessary. While there is not a limit in the number of pieces you may present for review, a collection of 5-7 is typical.
