Audition & Portfolio Review Requirements for All Programs

All degree programs in the College of Creative Arts, with the exception of Theatre BA, require a portfolio review (Art & Design) or an audition (Dance, Music, and Theatre).

You must complete the school application online as part of your audition day registration. Additional materials like letters of recommendation, resume and headshot can be brought with you on the day of your audition/portfolio review.  Learn more about requirements in each individual area...


Both the university application and a program application are required for admission into College of Creative Arts. You may complete the program application and secure your audition or portfolio review day before or after your university application is completed. An admission decision for your program cannot be made until after you have been admitted to West Virginia University.

Yellow Ribbon Program for Veterans

Since 2009, the Yellow Ribbon Program has supported hundreds of Mountaineers who have served their country. WVU remains committed to the Yellow Ribbon Program because we value what veterans bring to campus. It opens the door to our world-class education and secures the dream of obtaining a degree. Those receiving the maximum benefit from the Post 9/11 GI Bill may receive additional funding to cover the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition and fees. For all eligible WVU undergraduate students, West Virginia University has agreed to waive up to 50% of this difference with a direct match from the Veterans Administration under the Yellow Ribbon Program.
