New Student Information

Congratulations on joining the Juilliard community! We have compiled a variety of resources for you as you prepare for your arrival in August. Please remember that there are several key deadlines that require your action throughout the summer. If you have any questions during this process, please be sure to reach out to any of our offices for further clarification.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is a week-long series of programs to welcome new students and ease their transition into the Juilliard

community. During this time, you will get to know your fellow classmates, take placement assessments, attend division-specific meetings, register for classes, and explore New York City and all it has to offer! Additionally, there will be sessions designed to address the specific needs and concerns of new graduate students and new international students. Learn more about Orientation and all of your pre-arrival requirements at the New Student Orientation page.

Key academic dates can be found on the 2020-2021 Academic Calendar.

Family Orientation

Recognizing the importance of building a smooth and informative transition for our new students and their families, the Office of Student Affairs offers a parallel  Family Orientation. This program aims to provide resources and helpful information so families can build a partnership with Juilliard to better support our students. The Family Orientation includes information sessions about the different services offered for students and opportunities to meet key administrators and faculty. Learn more about this program at the Family Orientation page.

Please visit our Family Resources page to learn more about the services we provide to students and links to their web pages.
