Visual & Performing Arts applicants are given a longer review process due to the volume of applicants and the audition/portfolio requirements. All applicants for Art, Music, Music Theatre, and Theatre degrees must schedule an audition or a portfolio review. The date of the audition will determine the notification procedure.
On each review day, there will be a presentation by an Art Department faculty member, including a tour of the department facilities and the campus.
If you choose to submit an electronic portfolio, please upload your work to SlideRoom.
Most auditions for admission to the Music Department are held on campus in the Arts Center's Wilmot Hall of Music. Exceptions (off-campus locations) are noted next to the event date.
Students are reminded to have an application for admission submitted, and an account in SlideRoom should be completed before attending one of these audition dates.
Auditions for admission to the Department of Theatre Arts are held in the Nazareth College Arts Center.
Come prepared to take a warm-up class (ballet barre, and center modern combination), with appropriate body-conforming dancewear, ballet shoes, convertible tights/bare feet, and a water bottle.
Then plan to perform a prepared 2-minute solo in the style of your choice, followed by an individual interview with a faculty member.
