International Students Admission

University of North Carolina School of the Arts consists of five art conservatories that are ranked both nationally and globally as the place to be creative, to grow in your art, and to express what is uniquely you to the art world.

There are about 35 students from more than 20 countries that make up the 1,200 student population. International students are enrolled in all five of the arts disciplines, and represent all age groups, from the high school through the graduate programs.

Some examples of the services provided to international students are:

  • English as a Second Language instruction
  • Advising support
  • Assistance with cultural assimilation and integration within the UNCSA community

The application process for international students differs slightly in the required application documents and application fee.  Those differences are listed within the context of the art school's admission process.
