Recent Updates: The university is welcoming back visitors to campus. More information can be found on our COVID-19 Community Guide.

  • 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, preparation of a portfolio or audition repertoire, and life inside our classrooms and on our New York City campus.

    Our Welcome Center building is located at 72 Fifth Avenue, on the corner of 13th Street, and is currently open to external visitors.  

    For the summer term, our in-person offerings are limited to pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and campus tours accommodating a maximum of nine students with one guest each. Visitors without appointments may interact with Welcome Center staff in the Welcome Center lobby. 

    Those interested in learning more about our academic programs, admission requirements, or campus life are invited to connect online with a Welcome Center student assistant through our Welcome Center Virtual Desk. Virtual desk hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary.

    If you are unable to schedule an in-person tour, we encourage you to take our virtual tour and connect with us through one of our many additional online events. 

    Anyone interested in connecting with a student currently studying at the College of Performing Arts is invited to email [email protected] to request a virtual meeting.
