In-Person Auditions & Interviews
Audition scheduling is completed as part of the College of Performing and Visual Arts Audition Form. You will be scheduled for one or more auditions/interviews depending on your primary instrument and program of study. For more information about our on-campus audition days, visit our PVA Audition Days webpage.
Video Auditions and Virtual Interviews
Your video audition will be submitted to your Admission Portal after completing your application, but before your virtual interview. You will be scheduled for one or more auditions/interviews depending on your primary instrument and program of study.
Please note that all audition videos must be uploaded at the same time. Once you upload a video to the portal portfolio and click save, you will no longer have access. If you need to update your video at anytime, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
