How To Apply

What we look for:

The admissions process at Pacific Northwest College of Art is designed to identify prospective students who have the creative and technical skills, academic dedication, and the motivation and potential to be successful artists and designers.

The application helps us get to know you and your work so that we can determine whether your educational and artistic goals are a good match for PNCA's programs. Only completed applications will be considered, and there is no cost to submit an application to PNCA's undergraduate programs.
