Apply to the School of Theatre Arts and Dance

Admission to all undergraduate majors within the School of Theatre Arts and Dance requires additional steps beyond the UNC application

  • Choose theatre as your primary area of interest on your UNC Application.
  • You may receive an acceptance letter from the UNC Office of Admissions based on your UNC Application, but this is not the decision for admission into the School of Theatre Arts & Dance. Your STAD decision will come via email from Recruitment Coordinator Kendra Schneider.
  • If you would like to audition or interview for more than one program, indicate that on your STAD Supplementary Application.
