The Performing Arts Application Process

Auditions, portfolio reviews, and interviews are held on campus throughout the year during Open House events. (Please check the SFUAD website for Open House dates.) We also participate in auditions / portfolio reviews at various sites around the country. You may alternatively choose to submit your portfolio or virtual audition through SlideRoom.

*Resume and headshot are required at the time of the audition.

First Year Students

Deciding where to go to college is probably the most difficult decision you’ve ever had to make – but it doesn’t have to be scary. We have Enrollment Advisors to help you through every step of the process, which means you’ll have a real human being (and a friend!) in your corner while you navigate the world of college applications.

Transfer Students

We work very closely with Transfer Students to move as many of their earned credits from previous institutions into SFUAD credits as possible. Your Enrollment Advisor can assist you with a conversation about transferring your credits at any point in your enrollment process – you don’t have to wait until you’re an accepted student. For Transfer Students, our application requires students to submit transcripts for all previously attended universities.
