The next Preview Day will be on Friday, March 9th. We recommend registering early because space is limited. Registration for the Spring Preview Day is available on the Admissions Office website here

We offer tours of our music facilities, our film facilities, or our digital animation/digital design facilities. Prospective students can register here. The Department Tours can be paired with a CU Denver campus tour (offered on Fridays at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm). Please note that for the scheduled Department Tours, we are not able to offer tours of other areas of visual arts (photography, sculpture, painting & drawing, illustration, art history) on these dates. Tours in these areas should be scheduled separtely (see below).
