General Transfer Information

All transfer students interested in the Theatre Program must apply for admission to the University, in addition to completing the audition/interview process. Here is more information on the University's transfer admissions process. For information on how to apply to transfer into one of the Theatre Program tracks, please see below:

Please note that Fordham University cannot guarantee on-campus housing for transfer students.

The university transfer application deadline is November 1, 2021 for Spring 2022 applicants and June 1, 2022, for Fall 2022 applicants. Late applications will be accepted, but only on a case-by-case basis.

Please note that due to the sequence of coursework, all students who transfer into the theatre program—including those who transfer in the spring—cannot begin a majority of classes until the fall semester.
