Advising and Admission

Admission to any College of Fine Arts major requires acceptance from both Western Michigan University's Office of Admissions, through the application process, and the College of Fine Arts unit, through the audition and review process. Admission is selective, and the competition is keen.

Students planning to major in any art, dance, music or theatre program should seek detailed application or audition information from the unit's website. It is recommended that students begin this process a year prior to the desired start date. Advisors are happy to meet or talk with prospective students at any point in the process.
