The College of Creative Arts at West Virginia University will hold an Audition/Portfolio Review Day for prospective students, Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Creative Arts Center.

As part of the admissions process for the School of Music and the School of Art & Design, an audition/portfolio review is required for all applicants.

The School of Theatre & Dance does not require an audition or design portfolio unless the student wishes to be considered for a scholarship.

All three schools offer cash awards and scholarships—up to a full tuition waiver—to students who plan to study for a Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

School of Music scholarship recipients are chosen by audition. The criteria considered include: musical accomplishments, scholastic record and musical proficiency.

School of Art & Design scholarship awards are based on portfolio submissions that exceed basic competencies and abilities.

The School of Theatre & Dance offers scholarships on the basis of outstanding talent, academic achievement and the student’s demonstrated potential for success in the program.
