Admission and audition requirements
In addition to the University's admission requirements, students are required to audition for acceptance to the BFA in Musical Theatre program prior to the first semester of course work in the major. Auditions and interviews for a place in the program are held on campus in February and March of each year. Specific information as to the date and the process is available through the Department of Theatre and Dance.
