How to Apply
In addition to completing the ApplyTexas application to gain admission to The University of Texas at Austin, applicants must also gain admission to the department. This requires submission of the Department Application, followed by an audition, interview, or portfolio review. The Department of Theatre and Dance admits students in the fall semester only.
Applying to the University of Texas at Austin
Applicants who are applying for admission as freshman or transfer student should apply to the university through ApplyTexas. To begin your application, visit bealonghorn.utexas.edu, the university’s comprehensive admissions website. The department will only consider applicants who select a Department of Theatre and Dance major as their first-choice major. Applicants should list a major outside of the Department of Theatre and Dance as their second-choice major in the event they are not admitted to any of our programs. 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) & March 1 (Transfers).
