For Degree-Seeking Students For Outgoing Exchange Students For Incoming Exchange Students


The International Office offers programs for international exchange students joining us for semester-long programs at PNCA and PNCA students who wish to study abroad or participate in off-campus study. Additionally, we support international students who are working toward their undergraduate or graduate degrees at PNCA.

Degree-seeking students, please begin the admissions process here. If you need support in making your application or have any questions, please contact Rianna Robertson-LeVay, or phone 503-821-8888.

It is core to your studies at PNCA that you develop an awareness of diverse cultures, a sensitivity to cultural difference and awareness of culture’s formative effects. And we know we are a better community of learners and educators when we embrace difference and a multiplicity of worldviews and experiences. That's why the International Office supports a range of international exchange programs for students and faculty. 

Your education — and your life as an artist — expands well beyond the PNCA campus as you investigate the world through art while earning college credit towards your degree. From France to Australia, from Dakar to Tokyo, PNCA offers a wide range of study abroad options for both Short-Term and Semester-Long Programs. The AICAD Mobility Program (U.S. and Canada) gives you additional opportunity to pursue classes at other affiliated colleges of art and design while fulfilling PNCA requirements.
