Entrance into the Department of Dance as a dance major or minor is by audition only. Prospective dance students (including transfer students) must also complete the admission requirements for Chapman University.
Talent scholarships will be determined during the entrance auditions. Students must declare a dance major and be accepted into the program to receive a talent scholarship.
After auditioning, students will receive notification from Admissions if accepted into the university and the Department of Dance. Talent scholarship awards will not be announced until the audition process is complete. Notification of acceptance into the dance department is usually completed by the end of March, and notification of talent scholarship awards is usually completed by the end of April.
All freshmen and transfer dance majors begin in the Bachelor of Arts dance program. Dance majors may audition for the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program in the spring of their sophomore year. Students interested in completing the minor in dance performance should contact the department secretary for audition information.
Please note that many dance classes are open to dance majors only. Classes designed for dance majors may accept non-majors, providing the class has room, the student is at the appropriate technical level and the chair of the Department of Dance has given permission.It is the responsibility of all prospective students to complete The Common Application and all Chapman University admission requirements by the specified deadline(s).
