IMAP specific Admission Requirements (these items are to be sent directly to the IMAP Coordinator, see address below)

A portfolio of 3-10 pieces produced by the student, to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We are looking for substance and quality rather than quantity — short form or non time-based pieces might number 10; time-based pieces might number fewer. Your portfolio, depending on medium, may be submitted as link to online portfolio/website (preferred) or in digital form on a DVD or standard USB drive. All media should be accompanied by document listing the title, medium, size, and date of each corresponding artwork. A presentation binder of color prints is also acceptable. Do not send original artwork; materials will not be returned.

 Application materials will be reviewed by the graduate coordinator and IMAP faculty.

Further questions may be addressed to the IMAP Coordinator Marcin Ramocki at 201-200-3494 or imap@njcu.edu.
