Portfolio Days & College Fairs

Maine College of Art & Design participates in a number of college fairs, career days, regional portfolio events, and National Portfolio Day events throughout the United States, Canada, and China. These events provide excellent opportunities to have your portfolio reviewed and to speak with admissions counselors to learn more about life at MECA&D. We would love to meet you!

Information about times and safety protocols will be updated as they are available. Please visit nationalportfolioday.org/schedule for more information and to register.

We'll be conducting high school visits, college fairs, and regional portfolio days in-person and virtually this year, so stay tuned for details about dates and registration. We're also available for individual portfolio reviews, info sessions, and we offer webinars and Open Houses throughout the year — see more at meca.edu/visit.

We are always adding events to this list — if you are looking for a specific event, please feel free to contacts us via email at admissions@meca.edu to inquire.

See you soon!
