To apply to the PASCA Semester Abroad program, please fill out the online application or complete and return the downloadable application. Once the application is submitted, mail all of the required supporting materials. Your application will be reviewed on your academic achievement, creative ability, artistic and professional goals, individual achievements and faculty recommendations. PASCA cannot consider an application until all required materials have been received.
Either fill out the online application or complete and return the downloadable application. This is the first step of the Semester Abroad application process.
Next, send an official, sealed copy of your current transcript.
A portfolio is required for all applicants. The Admissions Committee reviews every portfolio individually. Send us 10 images of your recent work on a CD-ROM in .jpg format. Please note: portfolio materials will not be returned. Please do not send original artwork.
Submit the names and contact information (phone, email) of two recommenders. At least one should come from a current art instructor.
The Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art offers a limited number of partial scholarships. These scholarships are intended for students who would have difficulty attending PASCA without financial assistance. After a review of the applicant’s portfolio, academic record and scholarship application materials, scholarships are allocated on the basis of artistic merit, financial need and diversity (including age, ethnicity, geographic location).

- Passport / Visa
US citizens: If you do not already posses a valid passport, now is the time to apply. Regular passport applications can take 10 weeks or more to process. Expedited applications can take up to 6 weeks. To begin the process, US students should go to the official State Department passport website. You must have your passport in order to obtain a French student visa, which you will need if you plan to be in France 90 days or longer. (US citizens participating in one of the short summer programs will not need a student visa.) Students who do not hold a US Passport must consult with the French Embassy to determine if they are required to obtain a student visa to enter France. It is each individual student’s responsibility to determine what documentation is required for study with PASCA in France. The Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art will provide the appropriate invitations for students who request visa support.
Students are responsible for their own health, theft, travel, and personal liability insurance. Written proof of international health insurance coverage is required for all students, as is a medical form (which will be provided by PASCA) completed by your personal physician.
