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. 

To apply, complete the application above. TO COMPLETE THE APPLICATION PROCESS, YOU MUST SCHEDULE A MANDATORY MEETING WITH THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR. To schedule this meeting, contact the Theatre Arts office staff at 509-963-1750 or come to the Front Office: McConnell Hall - Room 102.

Admission to the BFA is by audition/interview only.

Full consideration for fall 2020 admission and scholarships require your online BFA application be submitted

by 1 February for Musical Theatre, 15 March for Performance and Design and Production. Late applications will continue to be accepted until all program spaces have been filled.

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.

To apply, complete the application above and arrange a meeting with the department chair by contacting the Theatre office staff at 509-963-1750 or come to the Front Office: McConnell Hall - Room 102.

Applications to the Master of Arts program in Theatre are processed by the School of Graduate Studies.
