Auditions & Scholarships


Scholarships and placement in the BFA programs are awarded to students based on talent, commitment and academic performance. GTA faculty evaluate prospective students each semester at an audition/portfolio event, and at the Georgia Theatre Conference in November, the Georgia Thespian Conference in February and the Southeastern Theatre Conference in March.

Auditions for Performance Majors

Screening auditions take place at the three conferences listed above and via video auditions. If you don’t see us at one of the conference auditions, you may submit a video audition. Requirements for video submissions are provided here.

Benefits & Logistics of a Two-School Program

We know you may have many questions about the logistics and benefits of our unique collaboration between two different schools, and we are happy to meet with you to discuss all questions. The best way to gain an understanding of the program is to attend a GTA scholarship audition event, where you will see our work, have the chance to meet current students, and discuss any questions with the faculty and staff.
