Virtual Visit

There is a wealth of information you can gather on our website! Be sure to read, study, and check back frequently for updates to our undergraduate admissions or graduate admissions process - whichever is right for you. 

Lots of questions can be answered by checking our admissions FAQs or the "departments" link in the gold ribbon at the top, but you're always welcome to contact our Front Desk for help. 

If you do come to campus for a visit or for a live audition or interview, we look forward to meeting you!  In the meantime, you may want to put a face with the name of the people you're likely to encounter in the Admissions Office:

Brian Igoe
