Apply to Fine Arts

Welcome to the Fine Arts Division Application Process. We will be using a web-based program called SlideRoom that works in tandem with the Common Application (Common App).

As a reminder:

The SlideRoom application is separate from the Common Application for Seaver College. You may access SlideRoom applications here or from the Common App. Once you select a Fine Arts major, Common App will redirect to the SlideRoom site where you can complete the required supplemental application.

Typically, the SlideRoom deadline is one week after the Common Application is due. Incomplete applications will not be accessible past the due dates. Therefore, it is imperative that you complete your SlideRoom application before it closes.

  • Spring 2022 applications are due October 8, 2021.
  • *Early Action applications are due November 10, 2021.
    • *Note: Early Action applications are open to first-year applicants only.
  • Regular Decision applications are due January 30, 2022.

If you have technical issues, or need general application support, please reach out to SlideRoom's support team. Applicants may receive technical support from SlideRoom by emailing support@slideroom.com from Monday-Saturday, 9 AM - 9 PM Central Time. If you would like to schedule a Fine Arts visit, please complete the Division Contact and Visit Request form.

Live Audition Dates:

Live Auditions for the 2022-2023 academic year will be facilitated both in person and on Zoom. Audition sign-ups are available in an online registration format. Sign up for the November 13th Audition Day for early admission applicants, both for virtual and in-person auditions. Sign-ups for the Audition Day will close on November 1st, 2021.
