Visual and Performing Arts: Auditions & Reviews

Register for your Session.

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.

Art Portfolio Review

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.
