Thank you for visiting University of the Arts on Acceptd!

UArts will prepare you for a career in the performing arts. Under the guidance of dedicated, professional faculty, you will learn, meet, bond, network, and develop personal and professional relationships that will last throughout your life.

Your experiences in our performance facilities — from a 60-seat cabaret to a classic 1,800-seat proscenium — can support any creative venture you might conceive.

Along with courses in the performing arts, you will have the opportunity to deepen and expand your art through classes in the humanities, sciences, critical theory, and the visual arts. 

University of the Arts’ Center City campus lets you learn in a thriving, culturally rich city that you can explore and enjoy throughout your time at UArts. I encourage you to take advantage of all that UArts and Philadelphia have to offer!

All performing arts applicants are expected to participate in a live audition and/or interview either in-person or virtual. There are no prescreening requirements. In extenuating circumstances, students who can’t make an audition day may be allowed to submit their materials for asynchronous review. Visit our website for more information. 

University of the Arts accepts students on a rolling admission basis. However, you are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible. For more information about admission, please visit our website.

Again, we thank you for your interest in University of the Arts and we look forward to meeting you soon.
