The College of Fine Arts is comprised of five distinct schools:
If you're applying to the Schools of Architecture, Art, Design, Drama or Music within the College of Fine Arts, you must complete audition or portfolio submission requirements in order to be considered for admission. If you apply to more than one of these programs, you'll need to complete an audition or portfolio for each program. Audition and portfolio review days fill on a first-come, first-served basis. All applicants applying to the schools within the College of Fine Arts are required to submit the Common Application prior to registering for a pre-screening, audition or on-campus portfolio review.
