May 31, 2022
Vancouver, WA – May 26, 2022, Clark College and Pacific Northwest College of Art are thrilled to announce formalizing a new transfer agreement that will allow more Clark College art students access to PNCA’s high-quality BFA programs.
Dean of Admissions at PNCA, Anna Miltenberger, had this to say: “I am thrilled that we were able to solidify this important partnership that provides a seamless transition for Clark students as they start their journey at PNCA to receive a BFA degree.”
Every student admitted to PNCA is awarded a renewable merit-based scholarship based on their portfolio and application strength, ranging between $15,000 and $23,000. In addition, Clark students with 90 quarter credits will receive a transfer partner scholarship of $5,000 per year, renewable for up to three years at PNCA. These scholarships can be combined with additional financial aid from PNCA and external funding sources. Students following the transfer pathway from Clark are guaranteed junior standing.
Grant Hottle, a Professor in Clark’s Art Department who was instrumental in creating the transfer pathway with PNCA, had this to say: “Our students are incredibly talented, hard-working, and driven. This agreement provides a means for continuing their art education at a prestigious institution.” On the broader impact, Hottle added, “The careers fostered by this partnership will impact the art community of the Pacific Northwest for years to come!”
