Student Exchanges - Maine College of Art

MECA has a competitive process for MECA students to study outside of the college. The following are a few of the many place you can take advantage and apply to. Limited spots available.

AICAD and the AICAD Mobility Program

MECA students benefit from the cooperative programs and built-in access to leading art schools that are members of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD). By sharing resources and facilities, AICAD colleges offer educational opportunities that, taken together, are without parallel in professional arts education. Through the Student Mobility Program, qualified students at one AICAD school can spend a semester at another participating AICAD school without additional cost or loss of credit. It is very important to discuss your interest in participating in the Mobility/ Exchange program with your Faculty Mentor and/or Major Program Chair. View the AICAD website.

MECA has an exchange program with Bowdoin College in Brunswick, 35 minutes from Portland. This program provides free cross-registration between the two schools, on a space available basis. See the Registrar if you are interested in this program.
