Applying to the Theatre Program

Admission into any Theatre Arts degree program follows acceptance into Central Washington University from an accredited secondary school program, community college or four-year institution of higher learning.

Community College transfer students are encouraged to meet with the department at the end of their first year of college study to discuss transfer options into the various programs offered at CWU. Dual admission programs may have significant advantages for students at two-year colleges. 


CURRENT CWU STUDENTS ONLY: To apply, complete the application above and SCHEDULE A MANDATORY ONLINE MEETING WITH THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR, Christina Barrigan. Schedule Meeting Now. Current Students and Non CWU Students: Questions about this? Send an email.



Admission to the BFA is by audition/interview only.

Priority for admission will be given to applicants who apply to the BFA programs by March 15, 2022.  Admission is on a rolling basis and students should expect to hear about the status of their application within three weeks of completion.  The site for applicant online submissions will open on December 15, 2021.  BFAs in Musical Theatre and Performance will apply using the Acceptd link below.  The BFA in Design and Production is accepting applications through email.  The application process is discussed in detail on the audition page.

More audition information can be found here including the link to our Acceptd application portal.

Each BFA program will admit 12-14 students for the next academic year. Late applications will continue to be accepted until all program spaces have been filled.

CURRENT CWU STUDENTS ONLY: Once you have been accepted to the program, you will need to SCHEDULE A MANDATORY ONLINE MEETING WITH THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR, Christina Barrigan. Schedule Meeting Now. Current Students and Non CWU Students: Questions about this? Send an email.



The minor is obtained by completing 30 hours of theatre courses as outlined in the catalog listing. Minors must have the discipline to become very involved in the program so faculty members have an opportunity to work with the student in production.  Emphasis is placed on gaining the skills required for future employment, in and outside of the theatre.
