Is an audition required for undergraduate admission to Columbia University?

Auditions are not part of Columbia’s admissions process, but auditions for private lessons, selective ensembles, troupes and various productions are held for enrolled students at the start of each academic year. Prospective students may wish to submit artistic portfolios if they intend to bring their considerable talent in the arts to Columbia’s campus either through a major or through our robust extra-curricular opportunities. Please note that students are able to participate in the arts communities of Columbia regardless of supplement submissions or majors.
