Should I submit an art portfolio if I'm not applying for an art-related major?

Hi collegevine, I'm passionate about art and have a strong portfolio, but I'm not planning on applying for an art-related major. Should I still submit my portfolio as part of my college applications? Thanks for your advice!

Hello! It's great to hear that you have a strong passion for art and a solid portfolio to show for it. While your intended major may not be directly related to art, submitting your art portfolio can still be beneficial. Many colleges appreciate well-rounded students who have diverse interests and talents. Including your portfolio can provide a glimpse into your creativity and dedication to your craft, which can be a positive addition to your application. However, be sure to check each college's specific submission guidelines, as some might have particular requirements for supplementary materials. In any case, remember that your art portfolio is just one part of your application, so be sure to focus on other aspects as well, such as your grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities. Best of luck with your college applications!
