Current & Transfer BFA Candidates

Applicants are expected to have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in all dance and dance-related coursework, a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5, and demonstrate adequate progress towards completion of the University General Education course requirements.

Students who do not meet these academic standards may be admitted provisionally and are expected to meet the BFA continuation requirements by the end of the second term after admission or will be subject to dismissal from the program. Students may apply to the BFA program twice; however, a student who has applied and been denied may be reconsidered for BFA admission and invited by the faculty if the student's academic record, class work, and production work show substantive improvement. It is not possible for students to complete this degree program if they are beyond the fall of their junior year, unless they plan on additional semesters.
