In collaboration with the Office of Admissions, the College of Fine Arts will host seven Fine Arts Day events during the 2009–2010 academic year. The events provide high school and transfer students who have been accepted to IUP with the opportunity to audition or present an art portfolio for acceptance into the Art, Music, or Theater and Dance departments.
Students that have applied and who have been accepted by IUP will receive a letter of invitation from the appropriate department identifying the Fine Arts Days available. Possible dates for these sessions include Thursday, December 3, 2009, and January 28, February 18, March 4, March 18, and April 8, 2010. Activities for the Thursday events include presentations by each department, tours, lunch, and other meetings. Also present are representatives from Housing and Residence Life, Campus Security, Department of Disability Access and Advising, and Financial Aid, each of whom is prepared to address questions from the students and their families.
An additional Fine Arts Day will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2010. Space is limited in this session, and students are encouraged to respond to their invitation in a timely fashion to assure acceptance. However, please note that for the Saturday Fine Arts Day, personnel from Housing and Residence Life, Campus Security, Department of Disability Access and Advising, and Financial Aid will not be available, and that all department offices are closed on this day. This is strictly an audition/art portfolio review date, and tours of campus or the ability to view housing suites will not be available. If it is important for you to speak with Financial Aid or Housing, to tour campus, or to see the housing suites, please plan on scheduling your audition or art portfolio review on a Thursday session.
