Recommended: Precalculus, Physics Transfer StudentsAll transfer students applying for entrance into the BS program must submit a portfolio. Portfolio must include six (6) to eight (8) examples of the student’s best work. Examples should be copies (not originals) of design work including any work in the two or threedimensional visual arts done in academic settings, practice, or as personal work. All work must include the name of applicant, date of work, and an indication of whether the work was an academic, professional, or personal project. If the item is part of a group effort, the specific role of the applicant should be included. All portfolio material must be bound. Portfolio overall size must not be more than 10” x 12” (25 cm x 30 cm) and 1” (2.5 cm) thick. The applicant’s name must be clearly visible on the binding. The use of slides is discouraged. The portfolio should be submitted by mail in a padded envelope to: The department will keep portfolio materials unless a prepaid, selfaddressed return envelope is mailed with the applicant’s portfolio.

Architecture (BArch)  0135  Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) 
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trigonometry with an 86 or above average plus high school precalculus or a fourthyear math for New York State high school graduates. Students must submit a standardized test score (SAT and/or ACT) with a recommended combined SAT score of 1,100 (critical reading and math) or a composite ACT score of 24. Physics is recommended. Portfolio RequirementsPrior to acceptance into the Bachelor of Architecture program, each applicant must submit a portfolio for review and consideration of her/his acceptance. Through the portfolio, the Department hopes to get a sense of who an applicant is as a creative individual: their spatial imagination, what is motivating them (expressed through art work, drawings, sketches, models, …), how they express themselves, how they explore the world through two and threedimensional media. Applicants should include 10 to 20 examples of their best creative work. They should be color copies (not originals) of art and design efforts, including two or threedimensional visual art, done either as personal projects or in an academic setting. Inclusion of some freehand drawings is strongly encouraged. Pages from student's sketchbook are acceptable too. Each portfolio page needs to list (in small, legible font) your name; the medium used; the date of the work’s completion; the dimensions of the original; and whether done as a personal project or in an academic setting. If part of a group effort, you need to identify the other group members and state your specific role. Included among the portfolio's 10 to 20 samples of creative work should be two drawings specifically responding to the guidelines below, in soft pencil, emphasizing light and shadows, and contrast:
All portfolio material should be in a flat binder of an overall size not more than 10" x 12" (25 cm x 30 cm) and max. 1" (2.5 cm) thick. Do not submit slides or digital files. Your name must be clearly visible on the binder. On the first page inside you should state that you are the author of the work presented (except for works done as group project  which you need to clearly identify), followed by your name, home address, contact information, and the school you currently attend. The portfolio should be submitted by mail in a padded envelope to: Alfred State, Admissions Office, 10 Upper College Drive, Alfred, NY 14802. Unless a prepaid, selfaddressed return envelope is mailed with the applicant’s portfolio, the Architecture and Design Department will keep the submission. Portfolios held by the department will be discarded within one semester unless retrieved by the applicant.
