Art Supplements

We welcome supplemental information from those of you who have a serious interest in the arts.  If you would like to have your special talent in one or more of the arts considered as a part of the admissions process, you must submit the optional supplemental material using SlideRoom. Submissions are due November 1 for ED I, January 1 for ED II and Regular Decision, and March 1 for Fall Transfer applications.

Art:  Please note the title, date, medium and dimensions of each work. Art work submitted on CD's will not be reviewed.

Instrumental or voice: Solo performances are preferred. Feel free to submit several samples that demonstrate your musicality, intonation, phrasing and repertoire, but preferably no more than 10-15 minutes.

Theater: Two monologues (of contrasting styles if possible) introduced by the applicant, totaling no more than four minutes, is preferred. If that is not possible, brief clips of performances, totaling no more than four minutes, are acceptable.

Dance: Please include no more than three samples of reasonable length as performer and/or choreographer. We want to experience the variety and strength of your ability. Please identify yourself if you are not the soloist. If you would like to include additional information such as a dance resume or letter of recommendation you can do this via SlideRoom.

Film or Video: Video submissions can either be a complete piece, an excerpt from a longer piece, or a selection from multiple pieces, but in total they should not exceed 10 minutes. The student should clearly state what roles were played in the production (e.g. director, camera, editing, writing, etc.)

How to Use SlideRoom

For Coalition Application: Access SlideRoom through the following link: Choose the art program that identifies the Coalition. Please contact our office for fee waiver requests and any additional questions.

For Common Application: SlideRoom is accessible via the Common Application.

  • In the Member Questions section, you must answer the question that begins “Do you intend to submit an art supplement…” in the affirmative.
  • If you have already submitted your application and did not answer this question, you can still submit an arts supplement by logging in to SlideRoom here:  If you used the same e-mail address for your SlideRoom and Common App accounts you will be prompted by SlideRoom for your Common App ID (located in the top-right corner of the Common App screen). If not, you can still submit the arts supplement (we will sync your submission with your application).
