CONCENTRATION PLACEMENT and INTERVIEWS
All incoming first year undergraduate applicants and all transfer applicants must apply to Howard University via the Common Application. First year undergraduate students interested in one of our major concentrations must apply under the Early Action or Early Decision admission plan. Under either of these plans, your Common Application must be submitted by November 1, and all supporting documents (test scores, letters of recommendation, and so forth) must be submitted by November 15. The application deadline for transfer students is April 30th.
The Office of Admissions notifies early first year applicants with complete admission files of their admission decision in mid-December. If accepted by the university, students can then place/interview for their preferred Theatre Arts performance concentration (Acting, Dance, and Musical Theatre) or submit a portfolio of their work and participate in a personal interview (Theatre Administration, and Theatre Technology).
Transfer students must participate in the concentration placement process before they receive an acceptance from the university. However, transfer students who pass the concentrtion placement process cannot be accepted into the Theatre Arts program without an acceptance from the university.
All performance students must successfully complete the concentration placement process for the Department as well as gain admission to the University. Our concentration placements are held in the months of February, March, and April.
All students must submit a Headshot/Resume or Design Portfolio.
