Important Information for International Applicants to the MFA in Dance

Applicants whose primary language is not English are required to demonstrate proficiency in English for admission consideration. The department prefers that the applicant take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Internet-based Test (iBT), if it is available where you live. The UCI English language proficiency requirements are explained in detail at English Language Proficiency Requirements for International Students. International applicants should carefully read the information on this site.

Applicants should take the test early in the Fall so that that their scores will be received by the Dance Department by the January 6th deadline. The applicant must meet the Score Requirements for Admission Consideration and that score must be received by the Dance Department by January 6th in order for the applicant to be admitted to the audition or to have his/her audition DVD viewed by the admissions committee. Applicants whose scores do not meet the UCI Score Requirements for Admission Consideration by the January 6th deadline will not be considered for admission and will not be admitted to the audition.
