*This portfolio review is a separate process from the UC application you have already completed. Acceptance into UCSC does not guarantee acceptance into AGPM, and passing the portfolio review does not guarantee acceptance into UCSC. If you do not pass the portfolio review, but are accepted to UCSC, you may attend the university but you will not be placed in any AGPM courses and must pursue another major.
