Summer Admission

Auditions at SAB

All Summer Course results are distributed electronically.  Preregistered applicants log in to our web site for their results within 5 business days of their audition.*  Applicants who apply by paper at the audition site receive their result by email within 3 weeks of the audition date. 

*ALL California Workshop applicants, regardless of whether they preregistered online or applied onsite, receive their results via email on a specific date communicated at their audition.  Results for international applicants who apply by video will be distributed on a rolling basis beginning in mid-January through mid-February.

Before contacting the School please read the information below carefully.

Preregistered Applicants (National Audition Tour and NYC Auditions)
Results are accessed online through a link that will be posted beneath the table below.  You will need your username and password to login for your result. Please refer to the schedule below to see when your result has been posted. The first column (after the city) is SAB’s projected post date and the second column is the actual post date which is filled in once results become available for that particular city/audition date.

Onsite Paper Applicants (National Audition Tour)
If you applied by paper at the audition site, you will receive an email containing your result. The email will come from "The School of American Ballet" from the email address auditions@sab.org with the subject "Your Audition Result" or "Your SAB Audition Result." The email will be sent to the primary email address provided on the application. Parents, please note this is often the student's email address.  Please consider all possible email accounts when searching for audition results.  Please also check spam/junk folders before contacting the School.
You can reference the two far-right columns in the table below to see when your result has been sent. The first column shows SAB’s projected result email date. The next column will show the actual email date once the result has been sent.

Please do not attempt to contact the School regarding your audition result before you see a date and time appear in the ACTUAL POST DATE column for your city/location.  (Results are often not posted untl the end of the day).  If a date/time is posted and you cannot access/have not received your audition result, please send an email to webhelp@sab.org.  An SAB staff member will respond as soon as possible.  Please be patient and please do not call the School for your result.  Results cannot be given over the phone.
