Supplemental Application Materials
Beginning in November, applicants who have submitted their UC application and have listed Dance as their first choice major to UCLA will have access to the online supplemental application Dance. Applications are due December 15th and include the following specific departmental requirements:
- Unofficial Transcripts
- Personal Statement
- Sample Research Paper
For full details about requirements and instructions on submission as well as formatting guidelines, please refer to the Supplemental Application Worksheet below:
UC Applications are due separately from the department’s Supplemental Application. Once an applicant submits the UC Application indicating the World Arts and Cultures major or the Dance major as their first choice major to UCLA, their UC Application will be processed within 1-6 business days. Once the UC Application is officially processed, applicants will use their UC Application ID to log into the online supplemental application. Undergraduate applicants must submit both the UC application and department supplement to be considered for admission into the major.
All supplemental materials must be submitted through the online upload system; any physical materials submitted to the department will not be considered in the review process.
Please note that UCLA and the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance are typically closed from mid-December through the first week in January. We will respond to all inquiries submitted during this time upon returning.
If you are a current applicant and have questions during the holiday closure, you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org and may receive a quicker response.
