Transfer Student Information

BFA Audition and Interviews Procedures 

Admission to any theatre BFA program is by audition/interview only. Auditions/interviews begin with an online prescreening process.  Begin the process.

We have found students are most successful in completing a BFA degree within four years when they enter our program as a freshman or sophomore. Ask about our 1+3 option!


Theatre Arts Scholarships

Scholarship audition requirements are the same requirements for students seeking admission into the BFA programs . Bachelor of Arts students should choose an area of concentration in which to apply for scholarship opportunities.

CWU Schola​rship Central

Dual Admission Program

The purpose of the Dual Admission program is to provide a smooth and successful transition for the student from a participating community or technical college to Central Washington University (CWU). Students who participate in the program are considered fully admitted to the community or technical college and conditionally admitted to CWU. They will benefit from access to resources at both institutions during their academic career and be better prepared to transition into their baccalaureate program. The CWU $50 admission application fee and the $100 confirmation deposit will be waived.
