IMPORTANT: Students who accept an offer into Acting or Production must submit a request to change their degree from Honours BA (Specialized) to Honours BFA (Specialized) by going online and electronically submitting a Program Change Request before June 30th  (available at https://myacademicrecord.students.yorku.ca/program-change).

 

For students entering the Second-Year Acting Conservatory:

All three General Education requirements must be completed within your first 90 credits, and it is strongly recommended that you complete them within your first 60 credits. Because of the intense workload in fourth-year acting, it is highly recommended that students complete all courses outside the Department of Theatre before entering into their fourth year.

Acceptance into second-year acting does not automatically guarantee entrance into third- or fourth-year acting.  Students will be reassessed at the end of each term. Assessment is based on academic standing, evaluation/audition and progress in class work.

Students in the Acting Conservatory must maintain a grade of “B” or higher in each course of voice, movement and acting classes each term in order to be allowed to advance to the next term.

Anyone leaving the Acting Area for a period of one year or more, for whatever reason, even if in good academic standing, will be expected to re-audition to re-enter the Area unless a statement to the contrary has been received in writing from the Area at the time of withdrawal.
