Undergraduate Audition and Application Information

Getting in isn't easy. It shouldn't be.

Acceptance into the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and film is competitive. To get in, you will be required to meet a high standard. From there, our faculty will be with you every step of the way. We encourage you to audition or apply early and be well-prepared. All students are considered for scholarships.

The audition or application is in addition to the formal application process for admission to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We encourage all prospective students to complete their application for admission to UNL as soon as possible in order to be eligible for university-wide scholarship support.
