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

  • Our undergraduate, graduate, 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 small-group campus tours. 

    Although we wish we could welcome everyone who would like to tour our campus, doing so at this time is not feasible. Single-family tours are currently available on a first-come, first-served basis through October 29. Beginning November 1, tour capacity will expand to allow for up to three families to tour together. 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.

    Mandatory Health and Safety for All In-person Visitors

    Upon checking in for an in-person event and in accordance with NYC access rules:

    • All visitors must present to the Welcome Center staff proof of a negative PCR test.
    • A person who has been vaccinated should present proof of vaccination (e.g., CDC card — hard copy or picture or Excelsior Pass) — with a vaccine authorized by the U.S. FDA or for emergency use by the WHO — and a negative PCR test result no older than 14 days from the date of their admission event. 
    • A person who has not been vaccinated will be required to present to the Welcome Center staff proof of a negative PCR test result that is no older than four days from the date of their admission event. 
    • All external guests will be required to attest that they are currently experiencing no symptoms and are not actively in quarantine or isolation due to a positive test result, exposure, or recent travel.
    • All external guests must wear a mask in all university buildings and indoor spaces for the duration of their visit.
