OCAC to Cease Offering Degrees in May 2019

In February, the Oregon College of Art and Craft Board of Trustees approved a resolution to terminate all degree programs at the end of May 2019. After exploring a multitude of options to continue OCAC’s 112-year legacy, the Board determined closure is the only responsible path forward.

At this time, we are working diligently to ease our students into new institutions that fit their needs, and to help faculty and staff transition to the next phase of their academic and professional lives.

For more information on the closure, including information specific to students and their families, staff, faculty, alumni, donors and community program participants, please visit ocac.edu/closure.

COMMENCEMENT: 5/19 | 3:30 pm
CEREMONY: First Unitarian Church. | Reception to Follow at the Mark Building (Portland Art Museum)
