MECA On The Road - Maine College of Art

Portfolio Events & College Fairs

Maine College of Art participates in a number of college fairs, career days, regional portfolio events, and National Portfolio day events throughout the United States and Asia. These events are an excellent opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed and provide an opportunity to speak with MECA admissions counselors to learn more about life at MECA. We would love to meet you!

All events are first-come, first-served, so there is no need to schedule a time. More information can be found about the specific events through their websites (NEACAC College Fairs, National Portfolio Day, P-review) and on social media (National Portfolio Day on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter). We have many recruiters traveling throughout the US — feel free to check with Admissions to see if and when we’ll be in your region.

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 email us at admissions@meca.edu.
