All decisions are made by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions primarily on the basis of the general application materials submitted there. Most successful applicants submit only those materials. In rare instances, when we review a portfolio from prospective art students with truly exceptional credentials who we feel are a strong fit for our Studio Art Program, we are able to provide a statement about that strength to be added to the student’s admissions file. Submitting Studio Art supplemental materials does not require or presume that a student necessarily plans to major in Art. 

All applications for admission to Georgetown University must be sent separately to the Undergraduate Admissions Office.

Supplementary submission of a portfolio with no more than 20 images may make sense for students with substantial and well-developed talent that cannot be conveyed adequately in the rest of the application. But you should think carefully before submitting supplementary materials with your Georgetown application.

Due to University policy and the large amount of material we receive, we cannot offer any feedback or evaluation to candidates on their submissions.  

Subsequent inquiries regarding the status of your Georgetown University application should be directed to the Undergraduate Admissions Office. The Department of and Art History is not able to comment on the status of your materials.

Additional resources regarding the application in general can be found on the Admissions website (new window). Students who have any questions regarding their application ID number or other pieces of the general application can also call the Admissions Office Monday through Friday 9:00am-5:00pm EST at (202) 687-3600. 

In order to have visual art material reviewed, you must submit a portfolio of your artwork. 

Please provide up to 20 files. Images should be no more than 2000 px in the longest dimension. Each file should be no more than 5 MB in size. Do not submit images of collaborative artworks for which you are not the primary artist. Time-based files, such as videos or animations, should be an mp4 file of no more than 5 minutes.

Additionally, applicants may choose to submit one Word document or PDF with written content:
– A brief artist’s statement (less than 500 words), and/or
– If desired, captions for each work, which should include: Title, Medium, Size, and Year Created.

This document can be one of the 20 files submitted, replacing an image in the portfolio. Your portfolio should still total 20 files or less. You are not required to submit a statement/captions

Please note that if you choose to submit, materials must be uploaded electronically via by the respective admissions deadlines of 11:59 pm EST on November 1st, 2024 for Early Action, January 10th, 2025 for Regular Decision, and March 1st, 2025 for Transfer Applications to ensure receipt and review.
