Apply for Admission

Admission to Cornish is selective. We look for students with passion for their art form and interest in developing both their creative and technical skills. Personal contact is an important aspect of our admission process. We recommend that, if possible, all applicants visit our campus and talk with an Admission Counselor during the admission process. Your visit with us will enable you to ask questions about Cornish, as well as provide you with useful insights about the audition and review process. The more we are able to learn about you and your artistic vision and ambition, the better we are able to provide you with the information you need to make the right educational choice for your artistic future. We are always on the lookout for students who are passionate about their creative practice. We look forward to reviewing your application in the near future.
