Student Portfolio

All students intending to advance into the upper division or final two years of the program must submit a portfolio of their work to determine preparedness for studio coursework


Why is there a portfolio review process?

  • Assess work and progress to ensure preparedness for upper division studio coursework
  • Ensure top quality and motivation in OPDD program
  • Optimize faculty and facility capacities
  • Build presentation and professional development skills for internships, interviews, job applications, and ultimately a career in the competitive sports and outdoor industry. 

When is the review?

  • Spring of second year in OPDD
  • Students must meet with their Academic Advisor to create a long term plan and ensure that they have all prerequist classes completed or in progress prior to submitting a portfolio in the Spring. All long term plans must be created with the Academic Advisory prior to the Friday of dead week during the Fall Semester.
