Graduate Portfolio Days

Graduate Portfolio Days are hosted annually by the National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) and are geared towards individuals that have already completed a Bachelor’s degree program and are looking to further their education at the graduate level. These events give students the opportunity to meet with representatives from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) to learn more about the curricula, faculty, application procedures and other graduate program information. For more information about these events, please click here.

  • Please note that all events take place in the fall and all 2015 events have been held. We appreciate all of the prospective students that came out to meet our staff. The 2016 schedule of events will be announced next summer.
