Candidates are required to attend an audition and/or admissions interview, as arranged by core faculty. The audition/interview requirements will be custom-designed to suit each candidate’s discipline. Auditions/interviews can be scheduled at the URTA Conferences in New York, Chicago, or San Francisco. They may also be held in Boulder in conjunction with a campus visit. Special exceptions can be made for international students to audition and/or interview via Skype or by other means.
Due to the number of applications received each year, not all applicants will be granted auditions. The Office of Admissions will assess a candidate’s completed application to determine if the candidate will move forward in the process.
