Admissions and Selection Process

Applicants must have–or be about to receive–a Bachelor's Degree prior to applying for graduate admission. A 3.0 or better grade point average in the last two years of undergraduate or post-baccalaureate work is required. The GRE is NOT required for playwriting applicants.

All applicants to the playwriting program will be asked to submit one play that best represents their work and demonstrates their strength as a candidate for our MFA program. After a preliminary screening based upon the completed application and the submitted scripts, those applicants on the short list will be interviewed by telephone and finalists will be invited for an interview at UCSD.

Please note that due to the nature of our program, students may enter only in the fall quarter, and we do not accept transfer credits from other programs.
