Admissions Events

Visiting a college's campus to tour, engage in workshops, and have real-time conversations is the best way to decide if a college is the right fit for you.


Open House

PNCA's undergraduate Open House events offer you opportunities to come talk with our admissions counselors, instructors, current students, and financial aid advisors. You'll get time to explore our facilities, join interactive workshops for hands-on experiences in our labs and studios, and have the chance to wander around our neighborhood here in downtown Portland, Oregon.
