Application Fee

After You Applied
  • An interview and a portfolio submission are required for acceptance into The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. Upon receipt of the application and application fee, the school will notify the applicant of the scheduled interview date and time. Efforts will be made to schedule a mutually convenient date. See Preparing for your interview with The Kubert School”.
  • Interviews are scheduled at The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, Inc., 37 Myrtle Ave., Dover, NJ or online via Google Meet. Interviews are approximately 1 hour in length, conducted from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • The student’s portfolio is a strong determining factor to understanding the student’s level of proficiency. Students must follow the requirements precisely in order for the interview process to run smoothly, especially phone interviews. Portfolios must be presented digitally on a flash drive or shared file. For Personal interviews, original artwork is recommended along with a digital copy. Portfolios should consist of no more than fifteen (15) and no less than ten (10) pieces of your artwork. Your choices should be representative of your best artwork. No pieces should be older than three years. The rest must be more current. Specifications for Image Files: All images should be submitted in JPEG (*.jpg) or PDF format and RGB color mode. We recommend creating files that are 72 pixels-per-inch (ppi) because a higher resolution does not add clarity when viewing images on a computer screen. If you are scanning your images, scan at a high resolution and scale down to 72 dpi. Your file size should not exceed 3.0 MB per image. Please include your full name in the file name.
  • Your original artwork should be no larger than 11″ x 17″. Larger pieces (and sculpture, ceramics, murals, furniture, clothing, etc.) can be displayed as photos. You do not have to show originals -good quality photocopies are acceptable.
  • Variety of subject matter, format, technique and media are encouraged. The Kubert School will consider examples of portraiture, life drawing, landscapes, still life’s, architectural plans, etc. We will also consider comic books, comic strips, gag cartoons, illustrations, ad layouts, storyboards, pencil tests, etc. Artwork done in pencil, charcoal, pen & ink, pastel, colored pencil, marker, oil paints, acrylic paint, airbrush, watercolor, gouache, etc. will be accepted.
Congratulations You’ve Been Accepted! What’s Next?

The registration fee and signed enrollment agreement are due one month (or sooner) after notification of acceptance. The registration fee is non-refundable and is applied toward the tuition charges.
