Student Life

Down Arrow

A Thriving Community of Artists. We believe actors should act, dancers should dance and singers should sing. Simply put, we believe performers need the opportunity to perform in order to master their craft. From full-scale mainstage productions to student-directed films, we give you countless opportunities to perform. You'll also find audiences in the classrooms, in the black box theatres and on every corner of campus. Begin performing on your very first day of class.

Campus Calendar

Welcome Spring 2024 Class!

We're ready to help you get started and begin your studies with us. In this section, you will find useful information and resources to help you navigate the orientation process. To begin, click on the campus you will be attending to learn more about your specific orientation, including important documents, schedules and department contacts. We look forward to your arrival.

One of the unique benefits of AMDA is the opportunity to attend classes in the world's two entertainment capitals. Begin your studies amidst the energy and culture of AMDA New York, then transfer to the glamour and sunshine of AMDA Los Angeles – or vice versa. Or complete all of your studies at a single campus. The choice is yours.

There is specific information we must collect from international students. Please click on the INTERNATIONAL FORM button and complete the form in advance.

International Form

At the required International Student Meeting during orientation, please bring the form above, along with your passport and the signed Form F-1 I-20. We will make copies of these documents for your student file.

During your stay at AMDA, International Student Advisors are available to assist you and answer any questions you may have. Each international student advisor is a P/DSO. P/DSOs (Primary/Designated School Official) are AMDA officials that have been certified by the Department of Homeland Security to advise international students.

As performing artists, maintaining high quality physical and mental health is critical for AMDA students who must meet rigorous academic and performance demands.

During emergency situations/events, AMDA utilizes "Everbridge" as the emergency communication vehicle. Students will receive a communication to their AMDA email address, a text to their cell phone number and an email to the student's personal email address. When a communication is received, we ask that the students reply with confirmation to verify the message was received. Students should keep their contact information up to date through the student portal.
