Admission + Dismissal Policies
The University of the Arts reserves the right to deny registration to any student based upon the student's prior behavior or actions in a previous class, program or workshop at the University.

Additionally, any current student may be dismissed from his/her class and the program if found to be disruptive or behaving inappropriately in class or on the University campus. Students dismissed from any UArts Pre-College program will be denied admission to future terms and programs.

Students in the Division of Continuing Studies are expected to adhere to a Student Code of Conduct available on this website.
