Admissions Requirements for BFA

Prospective First-Year and Transfer Students Must:

  1. Submit their application through the Common Application or the Marymount Manhattan College Website to begin the Film & Media Production BFA review process.
  2. Once an application has been submitted students will be given access to their Admissions Portal, where they will be prompted to upload their Media Production Portfolio.
  3. Note: Your transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendation can be submitted at a later date, and do not need to be marked as complete in order to submit your portfolio.

Film & Media Production BFA Major

Admission to the Film & Media Production BFA program requires a portfolio review in order to be considered for the program and any Media Production financial awards. The deadline to submit a portfolio for scholarship/award consideration is February 15 (fall entry)/November 18 (spring entry), but we will still accept portfolios after that date.

Students who do not have a portfolio at the time of application will be admitted to the program as conditional Film & Media Production BFA majors and their work will be evaluated after the first semester by their faculty advisor.

(Please submit one of the Following)

  • a film or video submission up to 5 minutes in length; or

  • an audio project up to 5 minutes in length; or

  • a link to an online media project (e.g. website, game, emerging technology); or

  • 5-10 page script, screenplay, or storyboard; or

  • 2 page description of a short film or media project; or

  • digital photography up to 10 photos.

We will evaluate portfolios based on your creative talent and your potential to succeed in our program. You should focus on showing your voice as a media maker! Any genre is acceptable from documentary to narrative to experimental. We are more interested in your sample showing that you are resourceful rather than showing that you have resources. In other words, it doesn’t have to be an expensive project to catch our attention. Once you get here, we will provide the resources you need to enhance professional production value.
