Students must apply to the University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts. This can be done two ways: apply online or call 1-800-752-1000 to receive an application through the mail. Additionally, students must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Application. Please see your school counselor with questions regarding the FAFSA.

Note: You must have your University application complete to be eligible for callback weekend.

Scheduling an Audition

To schedule an audition date and time please visit http://app.getacceptd.com/umn. On this site, you will schedule your audition, pay the audition fee, upload your headshot and resume, upload a video of your audition (not required). Your video audition will be reviewed but it will not replace your in-person audition and interview. We will confirm your audition starting in November. You will schedule your audition before you hear back from the University about admission status. Please apply to the University before your audition date.

A $55.00 non-refundable fee will be collected by Acceptd when scheduling your audition and uploading your materials. The fee includes your audition fee and the fee that Acceptd charges for the service. To request an audition fee waiver please fill out this form.

Callback Weekend

60–70 students will be invited to campus in Minneapolis for call back weekend, held early March. This is a great opportunity for all of us to get to know each other better through workshops and auditions as we work to build a freshman company. All costs are paid for except for travel to the Twin Cities. Letters will go out by mid-end February to let you know your status post-auditions. Invitations to call back weekend will be by phone and email.

The weekend is not mandatory but is strongly encouraged. If you are unable to join us on campus, you will be encouraged to upload a video of your audition pieces before the weekend to share with the faculty who haven't met you. After the weekend, students will be notified of their status. Only 20 students will be accepted each fall semester.
