Audition/Interview Dates

All students applying to the dance, music and theater arts departments must complete an audition or interview on the dates indicated below. Visual Arts students only need to submit their portfolio online and are not required to attend an in-person interview.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to audition on-campus and in-person whenever possible. However, Mason Gross recognizes that travel can be costly and does allow students submit Recorded Auditions for certain programs.

Before you can schedule your audition you must first complete your  Rutgers University application for admission. Five business days after completing the university application, you will receive an email invitation to complete the Mason Gross supplemental application.  On the supplemental application, you will be prompted to request an audition/interview date. 

Audition requirements vary by your performance division. Please, carefully review the requirements linked on the side menu above and note any special instructions for your field of study.
