Your First Step is a Leap
Our strong reputation and rigorous programs are directly tied to the quality of student we enroll. All BFA applicants are reviewed holistically. We take into account your portfolio, your goals, your academic history, and your ambition to make a difference as a professional in the visual arts.
PCA&D operates on a rolling admissions calendar, which means applications are accepted and decisions are made throughout the year. Priority for scholarships is given to candidates who complete the application process by March 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.
You Are Unique
Here, you get to be yourself. You learn to learn from your mistakes, gaining the personal determination needed to succeed. You’re fueled by the energy that radiates when art and artists are all around you. And unlike those who attend a larger college, you aren’t another face in the crowd.
