The deadline for applying for Portfolio is August 18; I know you've seen this announced before. There's always some tension between saying something often enough or not often enough! The deadline for applying for Portfolio is different; it is not a "soft" deadline where one just pays a late fee if the deadline is missed, but is a "hard" deadline. Because there is significant preparation for a fast and very busy start in this course, late-comers cause unacceptable disruption and will not be allowed to participate, thereby delaying graduation.
So, if you intend to take Portfolio this Fall, you must have already submitted your Application for Admission to Candidacy (AAC) form. Then, to apply for Portfolio, go to this link: Apply for Portfolio and complete the online form.
Contact me if you have any questions...thanks!
