CAMD’s Undergraduate Admissions staff is here to help you navigate the application process. For information about application materials, enrollment, and next steps, please contact:
Senior Director of Enrollment

If you have department-specific questions regarding programs, coursework, or portfolio submissions, please contact an administrator at email@example.com. Northeastern’s Undergraduate Admissions Frequently Asked Admissions Questions is also good source of information about the admissions and enrollment process, visiting, financial aid and scholarships, and life at Northeastern.
Admissions Decision Timelines
Depending on the admissions plan you’ve chosen, you’ll receive notification of the admissions decision on one of the following dates:
- Early Decision: Mid-December
- Early Decision 2: February 15
- Early Action: February 1
- Regular Decision: April 1
Shortly after notification of the admissions decision, admitted students will receive login credentials for Northeastern’s Admitted Students portal. There, you’ll find information on welcome sessions, orientation dates, deposit submission, academic advisors, and next steps regarding enrollment and registration.
During this period, we encourage you to visit us on campus. Shadow a student as they attend classes, eat lunch in a dining facility or student center, introduce yourself to faculty members, and meet your new classmates!
While not required as part of your CAMD application, all students applying for freshman admission are welcome and encouraged to submit a portfolio or art supplement. (Studio Art is the only program that requires a portfolio.)
A portfolio is typically submitted under an applicant’s intended field of study, but you should submit your portfolio to the field most relevant to your current body of work. For example, if you are applying to Communication Studies but have a strong photography portfolio, you should submit your portfolio to Art + Design.
The portfolio review process is an excellent opportunity to introduce yourself to faculty and staff evaluators. We’re looking for students with artistic and creative talent, as well as those seeking the academic and professional opportunities at CAMD and Northeastern.
Portfolios must be submitted via SlideRoom, an online portfolio submission service. Applicants are encouraged to complete all forms, including Academic Profile, Media Uploads, and Personal Statement. Please only submit one portfolio. Additional submissions will not be reviewed.
Early Action/Early Decision: November 8
Regular Decision/Early Decision II: January 9
