A portfolio is not required for admission to the program; rather the student is required to complete the freshman portfolio review at the end of the first‐year coursework or the accelerated summer session foundation (if available). Admission to Appalachian State University allows the student admission into the first‐year foundation courses. The program is a first‐professional degree program and requires a four‐year sequence of courses. The four‐year sequence of courses terminates with a senior portfolio review and exhibit.
