The BFA Program offers two distinct performance paths:  BFA in Acting and BFA in Musical Theatre.  These two programs share an identical audition process.  


In order to begin your audition process, you must submit a pre-screen application and materials via the Acceptd website.  For more information on pre-screen requirements and to begin your application, visit us on Acceptd here.

Prescreen submissions will open on August 1st, 2020It is recommended that you submit your materials and application ASAP in order to secure your preferred audition date/time. The submission window will close on January 15th, 2021

Everything you need to complete your pre-screen is contained on the Acceptd website.  If you have questions on the process, you can email (for the BFA in Acting) or (for the BFA in Musical Theatre). 


Prescreens are reviewed on a rolling basis beginning on September 1st, 2020.  If your pre-screen is successful, you will be invited to a live, on-campus audition.  Those audition dates are:

  • Friday, November 13th, 2020
  • Friday, February 12th, 2021
  • Saturday, February 13th, 20201

Once you pass your pre-screen, you will receive more information on your live audition day. You will also have the opportunity to indicate which day(s) you prefer to attend.  Be advised that the day is a full day, including an audition, an interview, a campus tour, presentations from housing and financial aid, etc. You should plan a full day’s visit, as well as optional attendance at a show that evening.
