Images in your transfer portfolio should show your artwork in the best possible light. Photograph your artwork on a neutral background under even light - no dark shadows or extreme highlights. Images should be a minimum file size of 72dpi.

To receive transfer credit each class must be approved by the coordinator of the area in which the course falls under: Foundations, Drawing, Photography, Sculpture, Printmaking, Painting, Ceramics, Graphic Design, or Art History. If the transfer credit is not approved, the student must enroll in the MSU Art course in order to receive required credits.
