Admission to the Tisch School of the Arts is a highly selective process. We hold applicants to a high standard of academic and artistic excellence. Think of your Tisch application as an opportunity to show us who you are, what you’ve done, and what you care about.
The Application Process
The Tisch application involves two major components: You’ll first file the Common Application with the NYU Supplement, then you’ll complete an artistic review. The artistic review is required for admission to all Tisch programs, and each department has its own specifications. Depending on your course of study, you may have to submit a portfolio or schedule an audition. Either way, it's a good idea to check the deadlines and give yourself plenty of time.

Freshmen Application Deadlines
We recommend submitting the Common Application one month in advance to allow plenty of time to prepare your portfolio or schedule an audition by the application deadline. Learn more about applying to NYU and start your application.
