ID Entrance Portfolio & Application

Submission Deadlines

Portfolios will be reviewed by an Industrial Design committee three times per year; once per quarter. Students should submit their portfolio the quarter before they plan to start at WWU.  For example, for incoming Freshman their first opportunity to apply will be during spring quarter or the April deadline of their senior year in high school. Students who have not heard from WWU Admissions regarding university acceptance should still submit an Entrance Portfolio by the due date below. Please indicate on your ID application that you have applied and are waiting for a determination.

October 22 to begin winter quarter
January 21 to begin spring quarter
April 6 to begin fall quarter


Portfolios must be a PDF file or a website.  The PDF file should be named with the applicant's last name at the start of the file name, such as "MorrisIDportfolio.pdf".  The PDF must be less than 16 MB in size.  Video, animation or other time-based materials may be sent on a flash drive or a linked web address.  A website URL should be listed on the ID application.

Each piece is to be clearly marked with the applicant's name, title of the project, medium (or software/materials) used, size, date of completion, and optionally, the story behind the piece. In the case of professional or group projects, applicants should indicate their personal contributions/responsibilities. A maximum of twelve original pieces (or 18 total pages) are allowed. A piece may be allotted more than one page.
