Master List of "Unified Audition" Schools

CaMom13CaMom13 1908 replies13 threads Senior Member
Since there is no website showing all of the Performing Arts schools that audition over "Unified" weekends I thought I'd start a thread that can be updated and hopefully pinned for future reference. This is an initial list from my limited experience to be updated by the CC "hive mind".

I put only the basics so as to make this easy to read: School Name, Unified location, Is it an official "Unified" school and have CC members reported that walk-ins have been available recently. When you correct/update the list please copy the whole thing and re-post it with changes so the most recent post can be used for reference.

In case it's not clear NY - New York, CH - Chicago, LA = Los Angeles. ;)

    Florida State only does auditions on campus, unless that has changed, but I checked the website and still looks the same. I think the Unified auditions are for acting only.

    CCM traditionally only does acting auditions in LA.

    TCU does take a small number of walks ins, but you must apply to the university online first, even if you do it the day before.

    Hartt has walk ins opening only in LA when we spoke with them in Chicago.

    I would also suggest putting Hartt under H, not T.

    I dug up the Palmer House printed list (there were additional schools at other locations in Chicago):
    AADA
    ArtsBridge
    Ball State
    Boston Cons
    Butler Univ
    CalArts
    CMU
    Coastal Carolina
    Cornish
    Dean
    Drake
    Emerson
    Evansville
    Five Towns
    Fordham Theatre
    Institute of the Arts
    Univ of the Arts
    Ithaca
    Liverpool Inst.
    LIU Post
    Montclair
    Molloy
    NYFA
    NIU
    OCU Acting
    Otterbein
    Pace
    Penn State
    Point Park
    Royal Conservatorie Scotland
    Texas Tech
    Texas State
    Hartt School
    New School
    NYCDA
    TPAP
    Univ No Co
    U of C/CCM
    U of Miami
    Michigan
    U. of Oklahoma
    Utah
    Viterbo
    Western Michigan
    Rider
    I have the notes that the following were taking walk ins: SUNY Purchase, Otterbein, TX State, Penn State, Dean College, Arcadia, Ohio Northern, Five Towns, Miami, Ball State, Rutgers, Royal Consv. Temple, Valdosta State, LIU Post, Molloy, Wisconsin SP, Cornish, NIU, Univ of Illinois, Drake, Viterbo, UAB

    Note: This is Chicago...sometimes schools only do Acting or MT or both, some may be off-premise; yes, walks ins that I listed sometime did not show up on the official hotel roster, often because they rented a suite for auditions

    So Non-Unified is a school holding auditions at the same time of and near the official "unified" location but not in the same facility?

    No, it’s just not on the original group that formally organizes it. Here’s a list of those schools: http://www.unifiedauditions.com/

    There’s no significance if a school is on the list or not, as far someone auditioning. Location can be at Palmer House or not, and doesn’t mean anything. It’s typically a space issue, especially for large auditions or dance calls.

    @Twelfthman - good catch. Tisch. I will update later! Steinhardt has a different process than Tisch.

    Millikin isn't doing unifies this year. They are doing Chicago auditions.
    Where:
    Chicago Academy for the Arts
    1010 West Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60642
    When:
    Saturday, February 2 Afternoon Session Only (1 pm - 5 pm)
    Sunday, February 3 Morning Session (8 am - 12 pm) - Afternoon Session (1 pm - 5 pm)

    Also looks like no walk ins but invitation only through pre-screen. This is the weekend before Chicago unifies start.

    If you have corrections to the list, please don't put down a correction or an add - please copy the list and re-post it with changes and the data: Full School Name, Unified location(s), etc so the most recent post on this thread can be used for everyone's reference. If everyone does that, the list will get better and stay current.

    Last year, Rutgers took walk-ins at both NY and Chicago Unifieds. Otterbein did as well despite having a prescreen requirement. Hartt was taking walk-ins for both MT and Acting in NY and definitely for Acting in Chicago--not sure about MT. I didn't change it because I wasn't sure if you want stats from just last year. I'm sure it varies by year depending on how many slots are available each year.

    Thanks for putting this together. It seems like the foreign schools only do CH. Last year I heard that many were Unified-adjacent in NYC.
