B.A. Admission, Auditions, and Scholarships

How to Apply


Students do not need to audition for the theater arts major, as this is not an acting degree. Students who are primarily interested in acting should apply to our BFA in Acting for the Stage and Screen program.

Priority Deadline

February 15, 2021, is the priority deadline for the Fall 2021 B.A. in Theater Arts Scholarship Application. Students must complete their APU Undergraduate Application and their scholarship application by the deadline to ensure scholarship consideration.

This program is also admitting students for the spring 2021 semester, but spring applicants may not apply for the theater arts scholarship; they will instead be considered for the APU Grant as eligible.
