2. Complete the School of Theatre & Dance Registration Form

All admitted theatre majors must complete the Theatre Registration form which is available to admitted students on their VIP page - a customized portal where students can access everything related to the Millikin admission process.  This registration form must be submitted before an audition/interview date can be scheduled.  While prospective students enrolling in our B.A. program do not need to audition, they are still required to submit the Theatre Registration form.  

3. Audition or Interview

All students wishing to be considered for our B.F.A. performance degree programs must audition. Please carefully review the audition requirements and note our audition dates.  Upon completion of the Theatre Registration form mentioned above, students will be directed to our online audition scheduling system.  

All students wishing to be considered for our B.F.A. degree programs in Design and Production, Stage Management, and Theatre Administration must complete a successful interview. Please carefully review the interview requirements.  Upon completion of the Theatre Registration form mentioned above, students will be prompted to contact our Audition/Interview Coordinator.  Interviews will be conducted during our scheduled audition days, but may also be scheduled most days that classes are in session.
