In order to save you an additional expense, OR Thespians does NOT use getacceptd.com as our registration site. It would behoove you, though, to go to getacceptd.com and start your FREE portfolio. Many college programs are using getacceptd.com as a way of pre-screening students by looking at your portfolio. They have access to your information during the audition/recruiting season and may go back to your file for updates for added resumes, video/audio clips. They will have limited time to access to your Oregon audition information. All applications must be received by the due date to give the college auditors plenty of time to see your portfolio, if you have an account in getacceptd.com.
