Admission & Audition Procedures for BFA Acting
All students wishing to audition for the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting must submit a prescreen video via Acceptd. Prescreen requirements are as follows:
- Two (2) 60-90 second contrasting monologues (please see below)
- One (1) contemporary monologue (written after 1900). Contemporary monologues should be filmed in a "close-up" shot, which means the top of the head to the chest should be visible in the frame.
- One (1) classical monologue (written before 1900). Classical monologues should be filmed in a "full body" shot, which means that the top of the head to the feet on the floor should be visible in the frame.
- Monologues must be from a published play.
- Monologues may not come from musicals, television shows, or movies.
- Each monologue file should be 60-90 seconds in length (this time limit includes the slate at the beginning of the piece and is strictly adhered to; please do not upload media files longer than 90 seconds).
- The proper slate for a monologue is to share your name, the title of the play, and the playwright.
Students should also upload a headshot, a resume of previous experience in theatre, and two letters of recommendation from teachers, employment supervisors, or theatre professionals who can best speak to your abilities and potential.
Students submitting successful prescreening materials will be invited to an on-campus audition. Please note that an on-campus audition is required for admission to the BFA in Acting.
