How to apply
Talent-based creative arts scholarships are available from each School. The portfolio review/audition process for program admission will also allow students to be entered into consideration for these funds. Students within Art & Design and Theatre & Dance programs must be pursuing a major in the College of Creative Arts to receive scholarship consideration.
Additional information about the 2020-21 Process
The November 15 experience will be conducted entirely online with plans to offer a campus visit opportunity later in the school year. In December, we will confirm the options available to those who sign up for a Spring date.
Audition/portfolio materials are collected through SlideRoom through a separate submission from the application form. Please do not attempt to upload video content directly to your program application form.
The Audition/Portfolio review process includes a synchronous meeting time for faculty and students. However, this meeting will not necessarily take place on campus. Students may opt to meet virtually during their assigned time, and as we continue taking precautions related to COVID-19, the individual faculty or the college may choose to move all meetings online.
Your synchronous meeting (virtual or in person) with the faculty will be primarily an interview. You will not be asked to prepare new material beyond what is submitted in your video audition/review. You may be asked to present some of the pre-submitted material again during the live or virtual meeting. These requests will be sent to students no later than one-week prior to their scheduled meeting time.
The campus of West Virginia University plans to re-open for the fall semester 2020 and the College of Creative Arts does intend to offer on-campus experiences for prospective students who would like to visit. As the ability to accommodate these visits remains fluid, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org after August 20, 2020 to check for availability.
Additional digital resources such as tour videos of school facilities will be available as early as September 1st. Teleconferenced meetings with Creative Arts recruitment and with faculty can be arranged with James Froemel at email@example.com.
