Our Best Answer - Do you require personal interviews, auditions, or supplemental applications?

Personal Interviews / Auditions

Typically, personal interviews or auditions are not used in the admissions process. Students applying for specific programs (e.g., Theater and Dance) may be asked to audition for the major but not as an admission requirement. The College of Creative Studies requires a supplemental application for all students applying to one of their majors. Please see the "UCSB Supplemental Applications" section of the Freshman Eligibility page for more information.
