The University of the Arts Admissions

Here to answer admissions questions & provide info about UArts and to share interesting work, stories or other items from UArts and Philadelphia.

Have a question? Go ahead, ask!

We also really like submissions, so if you're a student or alum,
show us what you're working on!

We really like to follow UArts alums and students, but if you'd like us to unfollow your tumblr, just ask. If we re-blog your work in some form and it was not attributed, drop us a note in the ask box and we'll correct it.

We are pleased to announce that in addition to weekday portfolio reviews, department faculty members and admission counselors will be on campus from 9 am – 12 pm on the following Saturdays to review portfolios:

January 26    |    February 16    |    March 2    |    March 23    |    April 20

First: Submit your application, making use of our application checklist.

Then: Schedule your review by contacting the Office of Admission at admissions@uarts.edu or 215‑717‑6049.

Saturday portfolio reviews require a previously submitted application. If you’d like a preliminary review, schedule an appointment between 10 am – 3 pm on a Monday or Friday.

On-the-spot acceptance may be offered to applicants who show an acceptable portfolio, provided all application materials have been received at least two weeks prior to review, and who meet all UArts’ admission criteria.

Please note there are no tours of the campus available on Saturdays. If you would like a tour, please call the Office of Admission to schedule during the week.
