Submit the Common Application after August 15. You must use your Common Application ID to register for a pre-screen audition or interview/portfolio review.
All School of Drama pre-screen audition or interview/portfolio reviews have a $115 fee, due at the time of online registration. However, if you've qualified for a fee waiver under the Common Application guidelines, you can also have your Drama fee waived. For Acting and Music Theater applicants subsequently invited to an in-person audition based on their pre-screening submission, no additional fees will be required.
The School of Drama requirements vary by major. Please register accordingly:
- Acting and Music Theater applicants must submit pre-screening materials to getacceptd.com/cmudrama between September 1 and December 1. Pre-screening notifications will be released on a rolling basis, approximately two weeks after your pre-screening submission date. Applicants invited to an in-person audition based on their pre-screening submission should register for their audition on getacceptd.com/cmudrama at that time.
- Design/Production applicants must register for an in-person interview/portfolio review on getacceptd.com/cmudrama between September 1 and December 1. (Our in-person reviews require applicants to bring a physical portfolio to the review, review our Design/Production guidelines.)
- Directing applicants must register for an in-person audition/interview on getacceptd.com/cmudrama between September 1 and December 1.
- Dramaturgy applicants don't have an audition/portfolio review requirement but must submit additional documentation to the Office of Admission by December 1.
