Recent Updates: Visit our COVID-19 Community Guide for information about in-person teaching and learning this fall. 

  • Our undergraduategraduate, and student teams host a wide range of admission events throughout the year. You can learn all about our programs, the process of applying or transferring, how to prepare a portfolio or audition repertoire, and life inside our classrooms and on our New York City campus.

    For the fall 2021 semester, most of our admission events will be held virtually. Experience our campus by taking our immersive virtual campus tour, learn more about our academic programs by registering for an online information session or webinar, or meet with our team at an upcoming school visit, college fair, open house, or student panel. We've worked hard to offer many opportunities for you to get a sense of the culture, coursework, and student life at our university.

    Our in-person offerings will be limited to pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and single-family campus tours. Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus or meet with Admission. Those without appointments will not be able to enter the Welcome Center. 

    Performances, panel discussions, and other events are being hosted at CopaRemote.com.
