The results of this review will be forwarded in early January and if you are invited to interview, your interview appointment confirmation will be emailed no less than two weeks before the chosen date.
Supporting Materials - January 10
Portfolio ReviewThe portfolio review fee is non-refundable, unless the application is withdrawn prior to December 1. Candidates who are unable to travel to campus in order to interview personally with the Music & Technology faculty panel will have the option to "audition by recording" when completing the online application. Initial interview confirmations are sent in early January and final confirmations will be forwarded via email one week before the scheduled portfolio review date. Only candidates who receive positive feedback from the faculty critique will receive this confirmation email.
At the Portfolio Review, applicants will meet with the Music & Technology faculty panel to discuss creative processes, background, and future goals. To a great extent, the portfolio review resembles an interview. Candidates are not required to prepare or to bring materials or additional items to the appointment.
Decision and Enrollment
Applicants are notified of the result of the portfolio review electronically through the online application system after all candidate meetings have occurred. Decisions are released March 15, and admitted students will have until April 15 to consider the offer of admission and express intent to enroll.
