Apply & Audition

Apply & Audition

Applying to 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, N.C., or in major cities across the United States.

Select Your School Below

At UNCSA, you apply for admission to a specific program in one of our five conservatories—Dance, Design & Production, Drama, Filmmaking or Music—each of which has its own admissions process and requirements. Visit the Admissions site for the conservatory you plan to apply for to learn more.
