NOTICE: All on-campus visits, including campus tours, information sessions, and counselor appointments are suspended until further notice due to the Coronavirus and have been replaced with virtual options listed below.
Virtual General Undergraduate Information Sessions for prospective students have been created to replace on-campus visits and are now available and listed at pratt.edu/admissions/visiting-pratt/visit-undergrad/information-sessions/
In addition to registering for a virtual information session, we invite prospective undergraduate students to arrange a virtual meeting with an admissions counselor for general information and for an optional portfolio review (visual portfolios only) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also connect you with a current student.
High school students and transfer students are invited to meet with an admissions counselor on Pratt’s Brooklyn campus (currently virtual) from April 1 through December 1 or in an area close to you. Pratt’s admissions counselors meet with students and their families in many states in the US and in several countries to provide information on Pratt's programs, application requirements, and to provide feedback on students' portfolios (virtual until further notice). Appointments are required!
We do not provide portfolio reviews for graduate students or applicants interested in the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences (writing, critical and visual studies, BA in History of Art and Design). Construction Management does not require a portfolio. Please note that all portfolio reviews are for feedback and guidance only. They do not constitute a formal official review for admission and are not required.
Portfolio Review and Counselor Meeting Options:
1. (Currently virtual) On-Campus Portfolio Reviews: on-campus meetings/portfolio reviews are offered Monday through Friday from April 1 to December 1. Reservations are required. To schedule, please email email@example.com or call 718.636.3779. You may schedule a campus tour or information session on the same day if available by registering online. See below under Additional Visit Options.
2. Off-Campus Meetings/Portfolio Reviews in your area: Admissions counselors meet with prospective students in many areas of the country and the world. These meetings are ideal for undergraduate applicants looking for feedback on their visual portfolios or to discuss Pratt and its programs with a counselor. Appointments must be scheduled in advance. Each session lasts one half hour; please arrive ten minutes before your appointment. It is best to bring original artwork. If you have time-based work or digital work to show, please bring your laptop. View off-campus visit options below. You may also download a PDF of the chart at the bottom of the page. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule. Reservations are required.

What should you bring to a portfolio review? When meeting with one of our admissions counselors for a portfolio review, please bring no more than 15–20 original pieces of your most recent work in 2-D or 3-D formats as well as sketchbook material, if you have it. Please note that all portfolio reviews are for feedback and guidance only. They do not constitute a formal official review for admission. If you are unable to bring original work, we are happy to view work on your iPad or laptop.
