May I bring my application materials with me?

The department must be in receipt of your audition application, as well as your essay outlining your dance background and professional aspirations by the application deadline. The application deadline will be listed on the department's calendar. The department will grant some leniency in the timing of which we have received letters of recommendation, however students who do not have a complete application cannot be considered for scholarships or entry into the BFA program.

To prepare for her senior dance recital, Diaz-Yepes navigated lecture halls and dance floors, chemistry and choreography, body and mind.
