Students and faculty: create your Format portfolio

OCAD U + Format

OCAD University has developed an exciting partnership with Format to provide online portfolios for students and faculty so that they can effectively showcase creative content using a sophisticated, customizable platform.

This partnership provides active, registered students and current teaching faculty with the opportunity to build a portfolio using Format's services on a no-fee basis.

How does it work?

While you remain a student or faculty member at OCAD U, this service will be offered to you at no cost. For students, after graduation, this service will remain free for a period of six months. Thereafter, you will be provided with the option to transition your account to one of Format's fee-based packages, or discontinue the services altogether.

The use of Format's services is entirely voluntary, and is subject to the terms of use and privacy policy they have set out on their sign-in pages.
