Current COVID-19 Protocols (as of August 16, 2022)

At each stage of this ever-changing pandemic, our focus has been on delivering the highest level of artistic and educational experience to our students as safely as possible. We continue to seek input and guidance from our medical consultants, track CDC and local health department recommendations closely, and remain flexible in our response to conditions as they evolve. 

We also continue to focus on protocols that help limit disruptions to the Juilliard performance and academic experience – the fact remains that fewer cases in the community mean a better performance and educational experience for all. Keeping our community safe means welcoming visitors while requiring safety standard for all.

Vaccination Policy

All visitors to Juilliard are required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19; this includes any prospective student and guest attending an in-person tour. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the final dose of a vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization or the Food and Drug Administration. In addition to being fully vaccinated, visitors must answer a series of health screening questions on arrival and prior to full building entry and wear a face mask the entire duration of their visit. Only prospective students and guests registered for an in-person tour, with proof of vaccination, will be allowed in the Diamond Building; non-registered guests, friends, and other family members will not be permitted in the Diamond Building.

Proof of vaccination will be accepted via any of the following free mobile apps:

If you are unable to access any of the apps listed above, you may present your paper vaccination card, along with a government-issued ID, as proof of vaccination, to designated staff members who have been trained to examine those documents. Due to safety concerns, we are not granting exemptions from this requirement to be fully vaccinated.


  • Currently, cases remain high in New York City, and the CDC and New York City Health Departments continue to recommend masking when indoors. Therefore, public audiences and guests are required to mask inside the Diamond Building at all times, including during performances.
  • We strongly recommend the use of well-fitting, high-quality KN95 masks, which are available at no charge at the Public Safety desk.

If You Feel Sick

If you feel sick, please do not enter any Juilliard facility. We also ask that you refrain from visiting campus if you or anyone in your household has had a fever, flu-like symptoms, or any COVID-19 symptoms within the past 14 days; if you have tested positive in the last 10 days; or if you have been told by a contact tracer that you have been exposed to COVID-19, until you have been medically cleared.

These policies and guidelines will continue to evolve and are subject to change. The latest information will be posted on this page and emailed to you as we near audition dates.

Music auditions at The Juilliard School are held in person on our New York City campus; limited funds are available for need-based travel grants. All applicants invited to audition are expected to attend on their scheduled date and time, and are expected to have the entire audition repertoire prepared. While faculty may not hear entire works, they may ask you to perform any part of a required work.

Accommodations (that is, alternatives to in-person auditions) will be made only for extraordinary circumstances. These circumstances include pandemic lockdowns, a positive COVID test, quarantines, and travel and visa restrictions. All accommodations must be requested using the form provided by the Office of Admissions, and must be approved by the Office of Admissions. If you are granted an accommodation, you will be required to submit a recording of the entire audition repertoire. A live remote zoom round also may be required, depending on the individual major.

Questions about audition accommodations should be directed to Dr. Kathleen Tesar, Associate Dean for Enrollment Management, [email protected].

Information about audition dates and requirements will be available on this page on a rolling basis. Please check back as we will be updating the webpage periodically.
