COVID-19 Information (effective October 24, 2022)

Effective Monday, October 24, 2022, unless otherwise directed, masks are strongly encouraged but not required within the Juilliard Diamond Building. This change applies to campus visitors, including prospective students coming for consultation lessons, and prospective students and families taking campus tours.

While Juilliard continues to strongly urge full COVID-19 vaccination and boosters, we are no longer checking vaccine status for visitors or audience members.

NOTE: If you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days, a face covering is required at all times. If you feel sick or have been ordered by a public health authority to quarantine or isolate, please do not enter any Juilliard facility until medically cleared. We also ask that you refrain from visiting campus if you, or anyone in your household, has had a fever, flu-like symptoms, or any COVID-19 symptoms within the previous 14 days. 

For information on proper mask usage, please refer to CDC guidelines

These policies and guidelines will continue to evolve and are subject to change. Bookmark this page for the latest guidelines.

Music

Music auditions at The Juilliard School are held in person on our New York City campus; limited funds are available for need-based travel grants. All applicants invited to audition are expected to attend on their scheduled date and time, and are expected to have the entire audition repertoire prepared. While faculty may not hear entire works, they may ask you to perform any part of a required work.

Accommodations (that is, alternatives to in-person auditions) will be made only for extraordinary circumstances. These circumstances include pandemic lockdowns, a positive COVID test, quarantines, and travel and visa restrictions. All accommodations must be requested using the form provided by the Office of Admissions, and must be approved by the Office of Admissions. If you are granted an accommodation, you will be required to submit a recording of the entire audition repertoire. A live remote zoom round also may be required, depending on the individual major.

Questions about audition accommodations should be directed to Dr. Kathleen Tesar, Associate Dean for Enrollment Management, [email protected].
