  NOTE:  Intensive BFA programs in the arts culminate with realized projects.  These final projects are team taught between the USU and SLCC facilities.

Retention in the BFA Design/Tech program: Students must maintain B- or better grades in all courses required for major, have an annual portfolio review with the BFA Design/Tech faculty, and meet all department requirements. Annual reviews are held for each BFA student to determine satisfactory progress. These reviews determine if students will: (A) Continue in the program. (B) Be placed on programmatic probation. (C) Be discontinued from the program. Students not retained in the program must select another major. Students may apply for re-admission only with permission of the faculty at such a time that hte student has demonstrated significant improvement from the time of their dismissal.

Departmental Requirements:

  • Usher for each department production you are not involved in as actor or run crew. If usher spots are not available, students spend 3 hours in either the scene shop or costume shop before that show opens to assist with the production. Students have usher slips signed by the House Manager, or usher makeup time sheets signed by the shop manager, and return them to the office by the Monday following strike.
  • Attend production strikes as assigned. Strike crew calls are posted during performance week. Strike crew assignments are made for all students enrolled in practicum, and/or involved in the production.
