Major-Specific Admissions Requirements
Graphic Design, Interior Design, and Industrial Design
All applicants interested in SASD programs should apply directly to the University of Bridgeport through the Office of Admissions.
Undergraduate and transfer students must meet UB’s general admissions requirements. In addition, a portfolio review is encouraged, but not required, of candidates for the design programs. The portfolio plays a role in assessing the abilities of the student. The student applicant may personally submit a portfolio to the school at an interview, or send the portfolio, slides or Macintosh-compatible CD through the mail with return and contact information included. Applicants should call the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design at (203) 576-4222 or (203) 576-4034 to schedule an appointment or to make arrangements to submit the portfolio by mail. The University of Bridgeport participates in regional portfolio days sponsored by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and portfolio reviews may be completed at the NASAD program.
