Spring 2019 School of Art
Guidelines for Selective Admissions
Every student who has finished their foundations courses and are prepared to progress to a major in the School of Art must submit an application through Slideroom as part of the Selective Admissions process. The Spring 2019 deadline to apply is Friday, April 12, 2019.
Apply for Selective Admissions at design.lsu.edu/art/slideroom
Admission into the areas of Ceramics, Digital Art, Graphic Design, Painting & Drawing, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture is selective. Students seeking admission into these curricula are required to apply for admission. This process takes place once per year at the end of the spring semester. Students wanting to apply should first read the below guide then complete the application at design.lsu.edu/art/slideroom
A student may apply to multiple areas for admission, and will indicate which areas and rank their choices in the application form. Students seeking a minor in any of the areas listed above do not need to recomplete the Slideroom submission for consideration. Please note Graphic Design and Photography require a physical portfolio submission in addition to the Slideroom application.
Graphic Design Physical Submission Deadline: April 1, 2019
The Photography Physical Submission Deadline: May 2, 2019
Although the College of Art & Design requires students maintain at least a 2.0 GPA, the competitive nature of the selective admissions process means that a higher GPA is almost always necessary.
