The National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) was created in 1978, solely for the organization and planning of National Portfolio Days to connect visual art and design students with its member institutions worldwide. In Fall 2020 The National Portfolio Day Association moved all in-person events online and hosted 16 virtual Portfolio Day events. Students who participate receive 100% free, online portfolio reviews.
The Association consists of representatives from regionally accredited US colleges and universities that are accredited institutional members of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and Canadian colleges and universities that are members of Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) or that hold NASAD Substantial Equivalency status. NPDA is the only organization of its kind and the membership represent the highest standard of visual arts education available in the United States and Canada.
* Please note that NASAD only reviews curricular programs in the visual arts and design. For more information about specific majors please contact the college directly.
