Start your application, submit your portfolio, and jump-start your future with PCA&D.
Follow the application process below so we can help you find a path to your creative future
We have rolling admissions, which means applications and portfolios will be reviewed throughout the calendar year on an individual basis. Contact the Admissions Office at 717.396.7833 ext 1001 or email@example.com if you need assistance as you move through our process.
NO FEE. NO COMMITMENT.
You may apply through either the PCA&D application or the Common App website. There is no application fee.
Submitting an application isn’t a commitment to PCA&D but it will at least help us get to know you better. If you’re not ready to apply, start by submitting your portfolio (see below).
If NOT submitting through Common App, please upload a 250–500 word personal statement about why you love making art. Learn more in our FAQ’s below.
Submit an artistic portfolio online to help us assess your potential for artistic growth.
Portfolios should contain 8 – 10 pieces of recent, original artwork. If your portfolio only consists of fan art or fan edits, you will be asked to submit different pieces.
In addition to online submissions, we also review portfolios throughout the year at in-person visits, high school and college fairs, and on National Portfolio Day.
Have your school guidance or registrar’s office send your official transcript(s) to PCA&D Admissions. Transcripts should be sent by mail, Parchment, SCOIR, or to firstname.lastname@example.org with a written statement of authenticity.
Applicants not holding a high school diploma must submit an official GED or HiSET transcript in addition to high school transcripts. Pennsylvania and several other state GED or HiSET transcript requests are available here. PCA&D does not consider applications for students who do not have a high school diploma or equivalency.
