Admissions Timeline

Admissions Timeline and Important Dates

The admissions process consists of two stages: an audition application and an audition in the arts. A panel composed of staff from ProArts Colleges, artists from community arts organizations, and BAA staff conducts the auditions. If the student is accepted or placed on the wait-list, he/she will be asked to complete the admissions process, which includes official transcripts.
