We welcome applications from motivated students, and our Admissions Team is always available to help with the application process from portfolio prep to making college affordable.
We are committed to preparing students for life after PNCA, folding career preparation into every program as well as offering workshops and one-on-one support through the Office of Career Design.
We're a century old art school with a focus on the future in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon, one of the most creative and livable cities in the country.
