Connecticut College accepts art portfolio submissions from applicants, though submission is optional.

Applicants who intend to make a significant commitment to dance, music, studio art or theater are welcome to submit a portfolio as part of the application process. Your portfolio may be uploaded into your applicant portal. Login credentials for your portal are sent as soon as your Common Application is submitted. Submissions must be uploaded within 10 days of your application deadline.

Please be advised that the Dance Department holds two on-campus auditions in the fall semester and prefers that students audition in person.

Note that only when a student chooses to declare a major in the arts is an audition or portfolio review required. The deadline for declaring a major is the second semester of sophomore year. Please contact the department of interest to you for further details about auditions and/or portfolio reviews for intended majors.
