2020 Audition Guidelines
Prospective students must complete all Admissions Requirements as well as the program portfolio or audition requirements to be considered for admission.
Please contact the Sarah Melnick (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any issues scheduling your audition after you submit your Fall 2020 application.
Live auditions are strongly recommended for all applicants except those applying to the Jazz, Composition & Experimental Sound Practices, Music Technology, and all World Music specializations. See the specific admissions requirements of the individual programs in the left menu.
Auditions are held in January and February on the CalArts campus as well as in select U.S. cities.
