Welcome to Tisch Drama!


  • In response to the coronavirus, all in-person External Transfer applicant artistic reviews will be conducted digitally. Applicants who have already scheduled an in-person artistic review will be contacted with details and instructions. Please note that this change will not adversely affect your application!
  • All application and artistic review information on the website has been updated for the 2020 admissions cycle. 

  • Shortly after you submit the Common App, you will receive a personalized link to the Artistic Review Portal. All applicants must access the portal to schedule their artistic review.
  • After you submit the Common App, we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid immediately if you believe you will need any assistance to make your NYU education possible. Information on how to apply, complete the FAFSA and CSS Profile (required to be considered for financial assistance), types of financial aid and more, can be found here.
  • We want to assure you that there is no disruption to our admission and review process. We anticipate releasing decisions for first year applicants no later than April 1, and do not anticipate any disruption to our Transfer application process either. We will provide updates should there be any change in our status.
  • Studio placement occurs in late-May after acceptenace to Tisch Drama, with placement notifications sent after student deposits.
  • As a precautionary measure, we have cancelled all in-person undergraduate admitted student events, including Weekend on the Square, in April. We are disappointed to share this news, but will be offering a variety of opportunities for students to “see” the campus and connect virtually with current students and the NYU community. Stay tuned for more information.
  • Tisch Drama Admissions has temporarily suspended our weekly informational sessions as part of New York University's precautionary measures for preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
