Also, our fall Open House Information Session and Undergraduate Audition Day is held each November. Read more here. The Open House is a great opportunity to hear about our programs and ask questions. It is also an opportunity for early decision applicants to audition live. More about the early decision process on the Admissions site.
All prospective and transfer students must first submit an application for admission to the Steinhardt School at New York University before scheduling an audition, except for the fall Open House. You can find information on the application process through the appropriate admissions office: Office of Undergraduate Admissions
The Musical Theatre, Classical Voice, and String Studies programs require submission of pre-screening videos via GetAcceptd. Also, prospective students who are unable to audition in person may submit an audition video online via GetAcceptd.
