B.F.A. Theatrical Production Arts Internal Transfer Guideline
Ithaca College students who are interested in transferring into the B.F.A. theatrical production arts degree program may apply for an internal transfer. The process of applying to the degree program involves three major steps:
The student must contact the theatrical production arts area coordinator to set up a meeting. All prospective internal transfers will have an informal meeting with the area coordinator, who will explain the commitment, dedication, and focus that is necessary and expected from students in this major.
All prospective internal transfers must arrange for a formal interview during one of the available on-campus interview dates. See the department website at: www.ithaca.edu/hs/depts/theatre/prospective for more information about interview dates, times, and requirements.
Students may call the theatre arts main office Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST at 607-274-3345 to schedule an interview. At that time, the student will need to indicate for which concentration (design or technology) they wish to interview.
After the interview, three outcomes are possible: 1) the student will be informed that they will be accepted into the degree program; 2) the student will be asked to participate in a trial semester before the final decision regarding acceptance is made; 3) the student will be informed that they will not be accepted into the degree program.
Students who are accepted into the program and students who are asked to participate in a trial semester required to meet with the area coordinator before the end of finals week in order to fill out the appropriate paperwork.
