Two-Step Application Process

You must be academically admitted into Point Park University and artistically admitted into Point Park's Conservatory of Performing Arts.

Step 1: Apply for Academic Admittance

You must have your application for academic admittance on file BEFORE you schedule an audition.

  • Apply online: You DO NOT have to be academically admitted into the University prior to scheduling or completing the artistic review process. Official transcripts and test scores DO NOT have to be on file prior to your audition.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (Point Park's school code is 003357) to be eligible for financial aid. Full financial aid awards will be sent upon academic and artistic admittance. 

Step 2: Complete the Artistic Review Process 

A $115 artistic review fee and an audition or portfolio submittal are required for B.A. in dance education applicants:

Please note: Due to the number of students who audition or submit a portfolio each year, we do not provide feedback on individual audition or portfolio results.
