How to Apply

In addition to completing the ApplyTexas application, all applicants must gain admission to the department. This requires submission of a department application, followed by an audition, interview, or portfolio review. The Department of Theatre and Dance admits students in the fall semester only

Please note that many of our programs have audition and interview deadlines that precede the UT ApplyTexas application deadline. This is especially true for transfer students. 

Apply Texas Application Deadlines: December 1 (Freshmen) and March 1 (Transfers*).
