Audition/Interview Information

All students seeking admission to the Performing Arts Department at Elon University
must also submit a separate university admissions application by the final application
deadline of January 10, 2015.

All students wishing to major in Acting, Dance or Music Theatre must be accepted to the program through departmental auditions and interviews. The same audition/interview can also qualify Acting, Dance or Music Theatre students for consideration for a department scholarship. Students wishing to enroll in the Theatrical Design & Production Program must complete an interview/portfolio.

No audition is required for the B.A. in Theatre Studies, the B.A. in Arts Administration or the B.S. in Dance Science major or for a minor in Theatre Arts or Dance.

New This Year:  We are implementing a new process for admission to the Acting, Dance Music Theatre and Theatrical Design & Production programs. It all begins with an online pre-screening through the services of Acceptd (www.getacceptd.com). We will evaluate the submissions and invite the most qualified candidates to campus for a live audition/interview.

Please note the following important dates regarding our interview/audition process.
