Undergraduate Auditions & Interviews

SETC offers high school juniors, high school seniors, and college transfer students the opportunity to audition or interview and display portfolios for all participating recruiting schools in one convenient location. Candidates will upload audition materials/digital portfolios and recruiting institutions will create a Gallery page in our virtual convention platform. Recruiters can review auditions and application materials, identify the candidates with whom they’d like to speak further and schedule an interview through an online conferencing platform. All interviews will take place during the convention dates.

In order to participate in the 2021 SETC Undergraduate Auditions/Interviews, students are required to register as individuals and colleges/universities are required to register as organizations. Once you have registered, you will receive an email with further information and instructions about how to access your selected opportunities.
