FAQ 14: Students, Parents, Public

  • Sharpen your focus: decide what you would like to study. List specifics regarding conditions and environments you seek; prioritize your requirements.
  • Start your inquiry process in enough time to collect the information you will need to make informed choices based on your decisions and priorities.
  • Design questions that will help you to find out if an institution offers what you seek.
  • Acquire and study the printed information available from institutions that interest you.
  • Ask questions of people at institutions and in your community.
  • Prepare to meet audition and entrance requirements.
  • Visit institutions. Meet potential major teachers. Consider all factors. Include your possibilities for artistic and intellectual growth.
  • Understand your commitments and responsibilities if you enroll.
  • Enjoy the process. Consider it a voyage of discovery.
