Portfolio Days & 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, Canada, and China. 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 and all times listed are shown in local time. Virtual events are listed by state according to the major areas served. 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’ll be conducting all visits virtually this year, so stay tuned for details about dates and registration. We’re also available for individual portfolio reviews, info sessions, and have a suite of webinars and Open Houses this Fall — see more at meca.edu/visit.

We are currently 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!
