Two-Year Associate Degree Programs

NY Conservatory applications are processed on a rolling basis. Follow these simple steps to apply and enroll. The steps do not have to be completed in sequence, but all are required for NYCDA to render a decision on your acceptance:

1) Complete the online application form.
2) Complete your FAFSA, or add us to your existing FAFSA (this allows us to determine your financial awards and scholarships). The NYCDA School Code is 031207.
3) Audition in person, or by Skype.
4) Send us your supporting documents: high school transcripts, personal essay and references.

That’s it! The conservatory will notify you within three weeks of the school’s decision to accept or decline your application. If accepted, you will be asked for a tuition deposit to hold your place, and to indicate whether you will be living in our student residence. Your NYCDA admissions advisor will work closely with you throughout the process.
