Portfolio Guidelines

Portfolio Guidelines

Deadline: Students must have their Belmont application and portfolio submitted by December 1st to be eligible for the college merit scholarships.

  • The portfolio should include 20 digital images of your artwork, containing two or more different media to reflect diversity and breadth of experience.
  • Include a numbered checklist corresponding to the images, stating the size, date and medium of each piece, and indicating the correct viewing position. All 3D works should include at least one additional viewpoint. 


Portfolio Submission Process

Shortly after starting your application to Belmont, you will receive an email with a link to submit your portfolio for consideration. Students will create a new account with Accept'd to begin the process. Accept'd is a file management system the Watkins College uses to review portfolios. In Accept'd, you can upload still images, documents, and multimedia files.
