Undergraduate Application Requirements

The NYU Tisch Department of Dance seeks trained ballet and contemporary students, with at least three years training, who can commit themselves to the rigors of professional study.

Admission is limited to full-time students beginning in September only.

A student matriculating in the Tisch School of the Arts must be admitted at two levels: as a student within a department of specialization or major, and as a student of New York University. Admission standards that pertain to the University in general can be found on the NYU Undergraduate Admissions page and should be read in conjunction with the department's standards.

An undergraduate candidate must apply via Common Application. After the application is submitted, NYU Undergraduate Admissions will send an email with instructions and a link to upload your virtual audition date in the SLATE system.  


Auditions for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year will be orchestrated remotely. The details of this new audition process will be posted on October 1, 2020.

In the meantime, please explore the NYU Tisch Undergraduate Admissons page to learn more about submitting your Common Application. You will need to submit your Common Application before you can submit a remote audition.
