    Admission to the School of the Arts is based on a formal audition process. Students may select only one field of study in: Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music: Instrumental and Vocal, Theatre Technology or Visual Arts. Auditions are approximately 3-4 hours long and are measured according to a standard rubric. For each audition, students are graded in a combination of group and individual settings. Auditions are judged by a team of faculty members and each student receives a numerical score from 1-to-10 based on the overall quality of the audition.
      
    If you have a passion for artistic expression, we encourage you to explore School of the Arts.
      
    If you have any questions regarding our audition process, please call the Audition Hotline at 324-3502 and leave a message. All calls will be returned within two business days.
