Placement in the BFA Theatre program is determined by audition or portfolio interview. There are two specialization areas in the program: Acting, and Musical Theatre. Students enrolled in Theatre Performance: acting or musical theatre will proceed through studio coursework by demonstrated proficiency.

Transfer students entering the musical theatre program may be required to take a placement exam by the School of Music for placement in music courses. If a student has earned college credit with a minimum grade of C for music courses taken at another SUS institution with course prefixes and the last three digits matching a UF music course, this is usually granted as transfer credit when evaluated by the music faculty.

All theatre majors should consult the academic advisor as early as possible.
