Prospective students applying for initial admission to our recording arts school in Baltimore, Maryland are required to provide a copy of their high school diploma, transcript or GED equivalent. Students registering will need to bring:

  • $25 Registration Fee
  • Proof of Graduation (High School Diploma or GED)

Each student will be given a personal tour of our recording arts school. You'll get the chance to see our facilities first hand and get a glimpse of our professional-grade mixing, sound and video recording equipment. At that time an interview with one of our school officials will be used to determine the student's level of motivation. Students must possess the minimum verbal and written communication skills needed to be successful.

Prior to beginning any video or recording arts courses, each student will participate in an orientation meeting designed to familiarize you with our recording arts programs and school culture. Students will be given a review of the school policies, receive program documents and have a picture taken for their student identification badge.
