Currently, we are not offering in-person tours + info sessions of our College of Fine Arts facilities. As things evolve with the pandemic, we may begin to open up more in-person visit opportunities and will update those plans here.
We are now offering College of Fine Arts Virtual Information Sessions held weekly for prospective students to learn more about our programs and chat with current students.
Interesting in attending a general The University of Texas at Austin information session or tour? Check out those opportunities listed on the Office of Admissions webpage.
Can’t attend one of these sessions? Reach out to request a virtual appointment via phone or Zoom.
Please Note: Conversations with fine arts admissions staff are not interviews and do not impact admissions decisions.
The best way to get to know the School of Design and Creative Technologies is in-person. Plan a visit to campus to get to know our programs, our people and our many resources and offerings.
Fine Arts Information Sessions & Tours
The College of Fine Arts Information Session & Tour is held most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Download the Academic and Campus Resource Session Guide to view a complete list of upcoming dates and times. The session provides a presentation overview of degree programs within the School of Design and Creative Technologies, Department of Art and Art History, Butler School of Music, and Department of Theatre and Dance. The session also provides an introduction to the College's portfolio or audition requirements for admission to specific programs. Following the presentation, students and families interested in the School of Design and Creative Technologies take a tour of the facilities with a Student Ambassador.
When signing up for a College of Fine Arts Information Session & Tour, we recommend also registering for a University Information Session & Tour. Whether you're a prospective freshman or a prospective transfer student, participating in one of the university's tours will introduce you to the broader experience of attending UT and maximize your time on campus.
You can register for both the College of Fine Arts Information Session & Tour and the University Information Session & Tour using the button below.

It may be possible to schedule an individual appointment or group tour to discuss the department’s programs and admissions process. Please fill out a School of Design and Creative Technologies Admissions Appointment Request at least two weeks prior to your planned visit, and someone from our admissions team will be in touch.
