In October and February of each year, the School of Performing Arts considers all scholarship applications and reviews the eligibility of each student. Outstanding students are then selected to receive scholarships.
We offer more than $80,000 annually in undergraduate scholarships to new and continuing students. Additional scholarships may be available for qualifying junior and senior Performing Arts majors.
Most scholarships require that a student has submitted the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Interested high school and transfer students should schedule a Campus Visit. While on campus, students can discuss the audition procedure, meet Performing Arts faculty, visit dance and/or theatre classes, and visit with the financial aid and career counseling offices.
New students to the School of Performing Arts are required to audition or interview for scholarships consideration in Dance, Musical Theatre, or Theatre.
You're encouraged to register to attend our Performing Arts Day.
On this day, you have the opportunity to:

If you're unable to attend, contact the program director for your area of interest to make other arrangements for an audition or interview.
