We conduct informations sessions during two Tisch Open Houses for freshmen applicants and their parents in September and October.
Admission is a holistic process. Academic achievement and creative potential are equally important. However, in general, the portfolio is weighted approximately 50% of your admissions application. Students must meet both the general University admissions criteria, as well as our Department’s requirements, and be competitive both academically and artistically. Every October the department holds a Portfolio Review Day for Prospective Students.
