An Arts Portfolio (formerly called the Arts Supplement) is a way for students to highlight their talents and accomplishments in the fine or performing arts. Stanford applicants with serious interest or background in musical performance, composition or conducting may choose to supplement their admission application with an audition in music. Audition videos, compositional media, and supporting documents must be uploaded via the web from your application. Recordings may reside on an external site such as YouTube or Vimeo, and can be submitted by posting a hyperlink to the online audition. Vocal, instrumental, and conducting files must be submitted in video format, and most show the student's face. No audio-only files will be accepted except for composition submissions.
