ABOUT the ARTS PORTFOLIO
The Department of Theater & Performance Studies does not admit students directly to its program; all undergraduate applications are handled centrally by the Office of Undergraduate Admission.
Students who wish to highlight their extraordinary talent in the fine or performing arts—art practice, dance, music and theater—may submit an Arts Portfolio. These materials are entirely optional and will be reviewed at the discretion of the Office of Undergraduate Admission and the fine arts faculty.
Please read the instructions thoroughly:
