If your intended program is open to the receipt of Spring applications, all pre-screening materials and audition fee must be submitted through Slideroom by October 15. Live auditions for Spring take place in early November.
We will hold Fall auditions for all programs. In order to qualify for a live audition, all applicants must first apply for admission to Purchase College; and they must also submit all pre-screening materials and audition fee through Slideroom . Only students who have a successful pre-screening audition will be called back for a live audition. Students who do not pass the pre-screening audition will not be eligible for admission to the Conservatory.

IMPORTANT: Live audition dates are assigned at the discretion of the Conservatory according to instrument and program.

The Conservatory cannot guarantee that a change can be made. Please plan accordingly.
