How to Apply

Admission into the dance program is a multistep process. Students wishing to pursue a Dance BFA must apply to both the University and the School of Dance. Each year, for merit and talent scholarship consideration, please apply by the November 1 Early Action Deadline. Follow the steps below.

Part One - Application

Apply to the university. Your application to the university must be on file prior to your audition. The early action and scholarship application deadline is November 1, the regular decision application deadline is February 1, and the transfer application priority deadline is March 1.

Please allow 48-72 hours for the university to generate a unique George Mason University G number. This identification number is necessary to complete Part Two – Audition application process.

Part Two - Audition

Apply to the School of Dance through Slideroom and schedule your audition. Here are the Fall 2023/Spring 2024 audition dates:

  • November 4, 2023
  • January 13, 2024 (New York City)
  • February 3, 2024

Note: The Mason School of Dance also auditions through Dancewave Through College and Beyond (DTCB). Since the DTCB audition is not facilitated by the Mason School of Dance, applicants may additionally apply to audition directly with the School of Dance.
