Undergraduate Application Process
Apply to WVU: College of Creative Arts applicants must be enrolled at West Virginia University before consideration.
After you are notified of your acceptance to West Virginia University you can apply to any College of Creative Arts School:
All applicants to the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program must submit a portfolio for review. We will notify the student and the Office of Admissions of the results of the portfolio review. Once you have been admitted, you will also receive information on the scheduling of classes. Students who do not meet the standards for entrance into the Visual Arts Program will be enrolled into the General Studies Program at West Virginia University and be notified of this action by the School of Art & Design and the Office of Admissions and Records.
All prospective students must audition for the music program. Auditions are held in Morgantown throughout the school year. A recording and other supporting material may be submitted when circumstances prevent a visit to Morgantown for this purpose. The audition is a preliminary assessment of your potential for success in the program. If you are admitted, your standing is confirmed or revised after the first semester of study.
Though there are no audition requirements for students wishing to pursue a degree in Theatre & Dance, all students wishing to receive a scholarship are required to audition or present a portfolio for review in Technical Theatre/Design. Please see the scholarship requirements page for further information.
