Undergraduate Admissions

Information about the application process, auditions, portfolio reviews and tours.

Auditions and Portfolio Reviews

Auditions and portfolio reviews are neither required nor reviewed for students interested in TAPS. Any materials sent directly to the department will be returned unread and we will not forward materials to the Admissions Office on your behalf.  


Tours of some TAPS facilities are available. Jackson Swartz, our TAPS student administrative assistant, will be glad to set up either an in-person or virtual tour of TAPS and answer questions from the student perspective. Prospective students are invited to request an appointment by emailing  


All inquiries about admissions, including the application process and financial aid, should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Additional Information
