- For admission consideration, submit the completed application, official transcripts and application fee as directed.
- To major in programs offered by the Department of Theatre and Dance, you must also be accepted into the Department of Theatre and Dance through an audition and application process. During your audition, you will be assessed for technique level placement. Upon acceptance, your dance faculty adviser will use the technique placement results when advising you about the appropriate courses for the school year. The Department of Theatre and Dance provides all of the information you need concerning audition dates and requirements and the names of faculty members in your area of interest.
Once you are admitted to Wayne State University, you will receive an invitation to participate in a two-day orientation program for incoming freshmen. We urge you to attend. Student orientation counselors and university advisers from the university advising center will give you information about all aspects of student life at Wayne State. By the end of the orientation, you will have everything taken care of to begin your college career, including registration for your first semester of classes.
Once you are admitted, you will receive an invitation to participate in an orientation program for transfer students. We urge you to attend. During the daylong session, the orientation team will provide you with a great deal of useful information about how things work at WSU.
During your first semester of attendance at WSU, the Office of Admissions will perform an evaluation of your transfer credit. It is important that seek out the faculty adviser for your major as soon as possible to discuss your educational goals and get the best advice about your actual course plan. We urge you to seek advising in your major department even before you receive the results of your transfer credit evaluation. By seeing a faculty adviser right away, you can determine the courses that you will need and may even avoid any overlap with courses taken before coming to Wayne State.
