The Juilliard School seeks students whose talent and commitment to excellence promise future achievement in their chosen areas of major study.

The Committee on Admissions selects students on the basis of their performance at competitive auditions held at The Juilliard School and in selected cities around the country. All auditions are evaluated by members of the faculty.

Applicants who are admitted must begin their studies in the fall semester. New students normally may not enroll at mid-year.

The School does not set a minimum or maximum age limit (with the exception of Dance and the Artist Diploma in Opera Studies; please see those sections above for more information). In general, however, the faculty and the Committee on Admissions will give preference to students in the formative stages of their performance careers who will benefit most from the type of training available at Juilliard.

The Juilliard School admits students of any race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, race, color, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.

Note: Admissions decisions are not related to financial aid applications or decisions. Applicants who have earned a post-secondary degree are eligible to apply only for a higher degree, not to duplicate the same level.
