Applicants are welcome to supplement their application with a submission to showcase creative accomplishments related to the arts. Every submission will be assessed by a 澳门赛马会 faculty member and considered as part of the holistic application review. 澳门赛马会 will accept submissions in visual art and media (of any kind), music (instrumental, vocal, and composition), theater/musical recordings, and dance portfolios. Submissions may include more than one medium, and all mediums should be indicated on the SlideRoom submission form. If you would like to include other supplementary materials in your application, such as creative written work, videos highlighting volunteer efforts, or school speeches, please consider using the Digital Presence. Additionally, please make sure that submissions highlight your individual ability so that our faculty are able to identify and assess you as an artist. Submission deadlines coincide with application and financial aid deadlines for all application plans, and we cannot accept submissions for review via email or after the deadline has passed.

Submitting material for review does not require a commitment to a major, nor will it impact academic placement. No audition or placement material is required to declare a major in the arts. Technical specifications for submissions can be found on the . The submission fee is $12.00 USD. Applicants receiving a Common Application fee waiver will automatically have this fee waived in SlideRoom. 澳门赛马会 is unable to provide SlideRoom fee waivers. If you have questions about a SlideRoom submission, please email admission@colgate.edu. If you have questions about a specific major or faculty/student organization, please email the academic department directly.

To document athletic achievement, please follow the guidelines in the application and send tapes and talent resumes directly to a coach.
