  • Admission Events

    • 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. 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. 

      Our ability to accommodate in-person visitors this fall is extremely limited due to COVID-19 precautions at the university and in New York City. In-person tours and appointments are currently available on a first-come, first-served basis through October 29. Additional dates and times for November and December will be posted by October 15. If you are unable to visit us on campus, we encourage you to take our virtual tour and connect with us through one of our many additional online events. 

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