MECA on the Road

Department Banner

MECA participates in a number of regional portfolio events as well as National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) events throughout the U.S. These events are an excellent opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed. We would love to meet you! There is no need to schedule a time, as these events are first come, first served.  

If you are able to come to MECA for a portfolio review, we encourage you to do so.  For more information or to schedule your on-campus portfolio review, please contact the Office of Admissions at 207.699.5026 or 800.699.1509. You can also e-mail us at

Throughout the year, members of the Admissions staff will be participating in a number of national and local college fairs. These events provide an opportunity to speak with a MECA admissions counselor to learn more about the classes, residence halls, studio facilities, and life at Maine College of Art. We encourage you to attend one of these programs in your area.
