Explore the Park, wander the galleries, and find your place at the NCMA through in-person and virtual activities planned by our College Advisory Council. Through juried exhibitions, internship opportunities, and peer-led activities, college students across the state can express themselves and gain valuable experience.
College students and recent graduates benefit from interning at the NCMA by learning and contributing to the work of an art museum.

Admission to ticketed exhibitions is FREE for college students on Fridays from 3 to 5 pm; just show your current student ID at Tickets and Membership. Admission to the permanent collection is always free.
The NCMA invites college students to submit original works for our Park Pictures billboard competition.
