Effective as of the 2005 Conservatory, AFA no longer conducts rolling
admissions to the Conservatory. Acceptances and enrollment are now be
done in two rounds: 1) before April 15 and 2) after April 15. Students
who audition either at their schools or at AFA before April 15 will
receive notification and enrollment packages at the end of April. Students
auditioning in May receive notification and enrollment packages by the
middle of May.
Several departments fill quickly (notably woodwinds, brass, piano and
composition). AFA recommends that students audition in the first round
as space may no longer be available in all departments during the second
round of auditions. Please Note…
instrumental auditions are heard without piano accompaniment.
