Admissions & Auditions

Undergraduate Admissions

Students must apply to the University of Utah and be accepted before being able to declare their major. After being accepted, students can declare their major by meeting with a College of Fine Arts Academic Advisor. Book an academic advising appointment.

Incoming Freshmen must apply to the University of Utah prior to February 1 to be considered for all University-wide scholarships and financial aid (December 1 for Honors and Diversity). Visit the Office of Admissions to apply.

To be admitted into the Actor Training Program or Musical Theatre Program, students must audition. Although recommended, you do not need to be accepted to the University in order to audition.

We have held our auditions and portfolio reviews for the 2020-2021 academic year. We hold local auditions on campus (typically in early December) and we will be at Unified Auditions in New York City, Chicago, and LA. Stay tuned for more information.

To be admitted into the Stage Management Program, students must complete a portfolio. This application requires students to submit a resume, a 1-2 page letter answering specific questions, and a 2-5 page sample of Stage Management Work, Theatre Work and/or Creative or Professional Writing.
