Entry portfolios differ by program. The following guidelines are for Graphic and Digital Design diploma applicants only.
If you are applying for the Bachelor of Fine Arts, GDD Major, please use these BFA Portfolio Requirements.
A portfolio is a compilation of work created in various mediums that reflect your talent, creative process, knowledge, interests, skills, and artistic development. An entry portfolio for UFV’s Graphic + Digital Design programs includes both visual and written requirements.

What to include
Your portfolio submission must include the following:
- 10 to 15 pieces of creative work
- Two written reflections
Graphic and Digital Design programs have a limited intake. Early portfolio submissions have priority in the review process. Incomplete portfolios may compromise your acceptance into the program. If your portfolio does not meet the criteria, you may be asked to attend an interview and submit additional requirements for reassessment.
International or out-of-region applicants may be interviewed online via Zoom.
