Schedule an SMTD Visit


When are Visits Offered?

Visits are generally offered during regular business hours Mondays and Fridays, and occasionally on mid-week days. However, available sessions & times vary depending on the day of the week and time of year and may not be available on audition days, major holidays, during SMTD orientation sessions, or during the university winter break. Should you have plans to travel to campus when an SMTD visit is not being offered, we invite you to come to the Admissions Office and pick up an information packet, which you may find useful on a self-guided tour.

SMTD Admissions cannot offer visits on the following dates in January and February 2020 due to the audition schedule:

  • January 9 & 10
  • January 16 & 17
  • January 21-24
  • January 29-31
  • February 5-7
  • February 12-14
  • February 19-21

Visit Details

Our visits include a guided tour of the Earl V. Moore Building and the Walgreen Drama Center along with an information session led by an SMTD Admissions staff member. This session will cover the programs offered by SMTD, the application and audition/interview process, student life, and answer any other questions you may have. Sessions generally run from 10:00am – 12:00pm (though times can vary based on the availability of a room for the info session) and are scheduled approximately one month in advance (e.g. January visits are added to the calendar in December). Central Campus tours and general U-M information sessions are offered by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Important note: Due to the construction of the new Dance Building adjacent to the Earl V. Moore Building, beginning in mid-October 2019 there will no longer be visitor parking at the Moore Building. This will continue until the project is finished in the fall of 2021. Visitors are highly encouraged to research Ann Arbor transportation options in advance of their visit.
