Attending a performing and visual arts college fair

Tuesday, October 25, 2011
If you plan to pursue a bachelor's degree in the visual or performing arts, your college application process may be different than that of students who are pursuing academic majors. Attending a performing and visual arts college fair can help you prepare for the unique task of applying to an arts program.

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) Web site states that this type of college fair is designed for students whose college majors will be in visual or performing arts. According to, a higher education research organization, these include subjects such as graphic design, painting, musical theater, film production and jazz studies.

When you meet with school representatives at the fair, you will learn about the admission requirements that are unique to college arts programs, including portfolios and auditions, NACAC states.

Before you arrive at the college fair, NACAC recommends selecting five to ten schools that you would like to learn more about. Visit their tables and ask the representatives whatever questions you have. If you are pursuing a theater or music degree, this is the ideal time to learn about the audition process. Or, if you have an interest in drawing or photography, find out as much as you can about the portfolio you will assemble. ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800626397-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
