Hello! “The University of the Arts seeks students who have achieved strong academic records and demonstrate talent in their chosen creative disciplines.” We’re interested in your overall academic performance and your demonstrable talent – we’re not too concerned with the specifics of the courses you’ve taken. Sounds like you’re very devoted to your art, which we can certainly appreciate!
That is a terrible way to treat an applicant and that is definitely not our practice. If you did not receive a decision letter, then some oversight has occurred. Please accept our sincerest apologies and please contact us to learn the status of your application / audition and so that we can issue a new letter immediately. Please do not assume you’ve been denied admission; we send letters to all candidates. Call 215.717.6049 Monday – Friday from 9 – 5 or email anytime at email@example.com. Best wishes to you.
Hello! Congratulations and welcome to the University of the Arts! Your next step would be to submit your tuition deposit (and housing deposit, if on-campus housing is desired) to secure your place in our program. This can be done through myuarts.uarts.edu/deposits using the login credentials you received in your acceptance packet. Grants and scholarships given through the University need not be accepted online – depositing lets us know you accept them. Your next step for accepting a loan is to complete a master promissory note and entrance counseling at studentloans.gov. Get in touch with more questions:
We look forward to seeing you on campus this fall!

Congratulations and welcome!!! Depositing by May 1 guarantees your space in our program, but deposits continue to be accepted after the deadline while space remains. Get in touch with your counselor to let them know you intend to deposit but are concerned about meeting the deadline. If you’re not sure who your Admissions Counselor is, get in touch with the Office of Admissions front desk at email@example.com or 1.800.616.ARTS / 215.717.6049.
If you’re interested in residing on campus, also get in touch with the Office of Student Life, at either 215.717.6970 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to discuss the possibility of holding a space for you in our residence halls without a May 1 deposit.
Can’t wait for you to join us on campus this fall!

Hello! Yes, the University offers both a Web Design & Development minor, which is open to all students, and a Web Design minor, open to students not enrolled in Design, Art & Technology. A portfolio is not required to enroll in these minors, but you will need to obtain permission from both your major and minor advisors. Read more about the policy governing minors and concentrations as well as how to enroll.
Hello! You need not worry about completing your degree; it will not affect your eligibility to transfer to UArts. Just as you said, we’ll evaluate your level based on the credits that you’ve completed that transfer, but admission is not dependent on having an AFA.
If you’re concerned about having not received your decision yet, please feel free to get in touch to learn the status of your application via 1.800.616.ARTS / 215.717.6049 or email@example.com.
Hope things get better soon, and good luck!
Hello and welcome to UArts! Students receive a materials / books list from the instructor as part of the syllabus. While dress code is determined individually by the instructor, for ballet class students wear leotards and tights of any color. For hip-hop class, students wear dedicated sneakers (not worn outside of class) with white rubber soles.
Hello and congratulations on your acceptance! While a space in our program is guaranteed to those who deposit by the May 1 deadline, deposits continue to be accepted after the deadline while space remains. Discuss your individual circumstances with your Admissions Counselor to see if a spot may be held for you a bit after May 1 without a deposit. If you’re not sure who your Admissions Counselor is, get in touch with the Office of Admissions front desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.800.616.ARTS / 215.717.6049. We look forward to seeing you on campus in the fall!
