The Department of Theatre and Dance may offer scholarships in addition to the variety of scholarships, grants and financial aid offered by the University.
Dance program scholarships are offered on a limited basis because of fluctuating funds and availability. Funds are minimal and might help students pay for books or other small fees. Incoming freshmen and transfer students are ineligible to apply for dance program scholarships. Application forms will be available in the Spring semester for current dance majors who wish to apply for a dance program scholarship for the following academic year. Thus, scholarships are available to current majors in their sophomore-senior years. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in their dance classes and a 2.5 overall GPA to be eligible for and keep their scholarships. Students are also expected to be professional and exercise model citizenry at all times, as their activities and appearance are a direct reflection on the Dance Program.
In order to apply for academic scholarships from the University, students must be admitted to the University and complete the scholarships application by December 15.
