    What's the scholarship situation lately? Is entertainment design still getting shafted when it comes to scholarship?

    That's what I'm interested in. What do scholarships these days look like for incoming applicants (is it different for transfers)? Anybody getting any full scholarships?

    Hey Deadlyhazard.

    I'm an illustration student transferring this Fall and my original scholarship was $7,500 per term. However it wasn't enough for me so I contacted the financial aid office requesting a larger award. A few weeks later, I was contacted and my scholarship was raised to $10,000 per term. Hope that clears some things up for you.

    That's a fantastic scholarship. Did you have a high GPA along with a great portfolio? Do you have it up online? I'm just curious what they might be looking for. Thanks for that answer, though!

    Thank you! My GPA is actually only "okay" as it's a 3.36. I did three years (6 semesters) of community college before applying to transfer and of those 6 semesters, the first 3 were from an era of me slacking off with no drive and focused-goal.

    The actual portfolio I used to transfer is on my hard drive in my desktop but since the capacitors in the motherboard are in need of replacement, that computer is torn apart at the moment. I do however have a Facebook page for my art where everything I submitted in my portfolio is on there if you would like to see the caliber of my work. At Art Center, they really want to see your technical skills so they request you put your best life drawings in your portfolio.

    Here's my page if you're interested!

    Hey thanks a lot Leo!

    Anybody know if you can apply to two majors at once (and is it any different as a transfer student)? I was considering applying to both illustration and entertainment design, if possible.

    Hi,

    Has anybody tried submitting a portfolio online? It says to provide 15-24 images but I have around 30. Is it possible to upload 30 images?

    Thanks
    I Love Anatomy Books!

    Cool, I got accepted to Illustration for Spring 2013 with advanced standing. Can't go unless I get at least a 10k a semester or higher scholarship, though. Anyone know what the chances are for me getting a scholarship? I have a crappy 2.9 GPA, and an EFC of 30,000 (which is unfortunate since my mom isn't going to aid me at all yet I'm slapped with that high EFC). I have some portfolio pieces uploaded at the very last post in my sketchbook for reference.

    Hey! I got accepted to Illustration too! I'm in the same situation as you are. I'm not planning to go unless I get nearly a full ride.

    I talked to a guy in admissions when I took a tour of the campus and he said that they take both your merit and portfolio into consideration.

    If you're really worried email the admissions office. They're extremely helpful. They just started reviewing portfolios for scholarships around last week.

    Thanks a lot, nice to see someone in the same boat. Not sure what I would e-mail them about if the deed is already done and I don't want to harass them ;p. I guess I get it if I get it, but if not....bah. My merit sucks (if by merit you mean GPA) I don't think a 2.9 GPA will be getting me anywhere with scholarships. Guess I shouldn't have screwed up my first year in college!

    Merit and portfolio are the same thing lol, still good luck on it, hopefully they started giving full rides now which i doubt (they are getting way to greedy at art center).
