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.

Tips for Portfolio Review/Interview?
uartsadmissions uartsadmissions Said:

That’s a broad question! Let’s start with our portfolio and audition requirements. Please feel free to ask follow-up questions.

Is there a SlideRoom portal for undergraduates to upload their portfolio?
uartsadmissions uartsadmissions Said:

Hello! While there is a SlideRoom portal for graduate students, there is not a SlideRoom portal for undergraduate applicants to submit their portfolios online. A fee is required of applicants using SlideRoom, so if an undergraduate applicant is unable to participate in an in-person portfolio review, we recommend free hosting services like carbonmade for images and YouTube or Vimeo for videos. Upon uploading, please send your online portfolio’s direct link to admissions@uarts.edu. Applicants may also submit portfolios electronically through the mail, using a CD-ROM, DVD or USB flash drive. 

Additional information about portfolio (and audition) requirements can be found here.

Portfolio Reviews & AuditionsSaturday, January 26, 2013
So, what do parents do while their child is auditioning or having a portfolio review? Presentations are made by Admissions and Student Financial Services (SFS) staff, after which parents can find out if their child’s application file is complete or what materials are still outstanding. Bagels, coffee and tea are available throughout the day. Here, Aisha and Dan, Admission Counselors, and Stephanie, SFS Counselor, field individual questions in Solmssen Court while a group of brave parents at the top of the stairs prepare to face Philly’s cold temperatures on a campus tour.
More Saturday portfolio review and audition dates coming up! Get your application in and get on our schedule.

Once ALL application requirements have been fulfilled, decisions are usually received within 3–4 weeks. You may also check with your admissions counselor or email the office at admissions@uarts.edu to find out the status of your application.
