Apply & Audition

Apply & Audition

Applying to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) is a little different from applying to a traditional college or university. Because we are an arts conservatory, we conduct in-person auditions and interviews with all of our applicants. We believe it’s the best way to evaluate the true artistic gifts and professional potential of young artists. The auditions and interviews are held either here on our campus in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, or in major cities across America.

At UNCSA, you apply for admission to a specific program at one of our five schools. Each of our five conservatories has its own admissions process and school-specific requirements.
