ANSWERS FOR MFA DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY APPLICANTS:
How do I apply for the program?
Is financial aid available?
I have had some graduate work in the past. Can I transfer in credits?
No, all of the course work in the curriculum has to be taken by all of the students.
When I submit my link or DVD should I submit one choreographic work, or a sample of different things?
If you have one work that really represents your choreographic level and voice it will be acceptable to submit that. Upload a YouTube link of selected works (12 minutes max) pasted in a Word Document.
Do I need to purchase computer software prior to beginning the program?
Students are not required to purchase any additional software for the program. The Intermedia class is taught in the face to face summer semester, so all students have access to the software in the computer labs where their Intermedia classes are held and where they have access after hours for homework.
Do I need to purchase books?
