Application

Thank you for your interest in AMDA. The Application below is for new students applying to AMDA (students who have not been previously enrolled). Applications for incoming students are valid for one year.
Students reapplying to AMDA, please submit the "Application for Readmission".

Admission to AMDA requires an audition. AMDA offers numerous audition opportunities in locations throughout the United States and select international cities. We also provide appointments at both AMDA campuses. We strongly encourage all students residing in the 48 contiguous United States to audition in person, as it is the best way for adjudicators and admissions advisors to get to know prospective students and fully evaluate your talent.

To request an audition, please fill out the form below. You must be a junior or senior in high school or have graduated high school to be eligible to audition. Please review the audition requirements for a complete overview.

For international and U.S. students who are unable to find a suitable audition location, we welcome a video submission.

We look forward to receiving your application and audition request.
