National Portfolio Days

MICA participates in 37 National Portfolio Days in fall 2019/winter 2020.

National Portfolio Day is an opportunity for high school students interested in freshman admission and college students interested in transfer admission to meet representatives from the nation's leading art colleges and universities. 

All participating institutions are National Portfolio Day Association members and offer professional programs accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Representatives will review your artwork, discuss your educational and professional goals, and share information on art programs, careers, admissions and financial aid.

All National Portfolio Days are free, open to the public and do not require pre-registration.

MICA travels the globe to meet prospective students. We attend events and set up meet-and-greets with interested students, families and art instructors across the country. There's so much to talk about. We offer feedback on your portfolio and can walk you through details about our programs of study, and discuss admission procedures and scholarship opportunities.
