Request an Admissions Tour

SFCM will be offering online information sessions and individual calls instead of in-person tours through January 2021. A general information session will be offered weekly at 11:00 AM Pacific Time. In this session, an Office of Admission representative will discuss our campus, location, student body, and programs. To register, select a session that works for you here

After attending one of the online information sessions, you will be invited to schedule an individual call time with an Office of Admission staff member to discuss your individual questions. 

We recommend prospective students complete our Request Information Form to be added to our email list for updates regarding online events.

Large high school group visits must be coordinated through the Office of Admission. These visits will not be scheduled for before July 2021 due to COVID-19 measures. Please contact Jason Lawrence, Associate Director of Admission, at least 90 days in advance to schedule a group tour.

Visit a Class or Rehearsal

Prospective students may observe online classes during the academic year to see the student experience firsthand. After attending the weekly online information session, we recommend scheduling an individual call time or emailing apply@sfcm.edu to schedule a class observation. To see examples of classes you may visit, see the department page for your program of interest.

Scheduling a Lesson

Many of our faculty are available for prospective student lessons throughout the academic aear with advance notice. If you would like to schedule a lesson, please reach out to them directly via the contact information on their faculty profiles, or reach out to the Office of Admission and we will connect you.
