We will continue to accept video audition and digital portfolio submissions through May 1, 2024, as space in the program and scholarships allow.
Please use the links below to submit your materials and feel free to reach out if you have any questions. As long as the link remains open, there is space in the program. Scholarships, however, may be significantly limited. Please inquire.
We also encourage private campus visits. Although we’re unable to offer an in-person audition for private campus visits, we're happy to work with you and the admissions team on planning your visit to ensure you meet our faculty, staff, and students and see our spaces.
To submit a video audition or digital portfolio, please register and submit your materials.
Video auditions and digital portfolios will be accepted throughout the year; however, scholarship funds may be limited or unavailable as we near the beginning of the 2023-24 academic year. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Please submit all materials digitally.
