In Your Area

Our Admissions team travels around the country throughout the year to visit schools, attend National Portfolio Day events, as well as participate in high school and community college portfolio days and college fairs. To find out when we’re in your area, please see below.


Portfolio Days
For students who are seriously considering pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a portfolio review is a great way to get valuable feedback on strengthening your work before applying. KCAI admissions representatives attend several national and regional portfolio days which are open to the public. To find a KCAI rep near you, please click here.  


School Visits
We conduct presentations in high schools and community colleges throughout the fall and early winter. These presentations allow us to share information about the 14 departments in the BFA program, including the new Product Design major! They also provide a great way to learn about the admissions process, including tips on how to prepare your portfolio, see current work by KCAI students, and discover what a career in the creative industries looks like.
