Policy on Changing Majors
The Denver School of the Arts staff recognizes that during a student’s tenure at DSA students may desire to change majors. Therefore, the following process will be followed in order to facilitate such changes:
- The student must meet, in person, with his/her current arts teacher to explain their desire to transfer out of the major and their intent to audition for another DSA major. Current major teacher will notify the teachers of the new major indicating the desire to switch. New major teacher may request to meet with the student prior to their audition. All of these meetings must happen before November 18, 2016.
- Between October 10, 2016 – November 18, 2016 at noon, the student must apply on-line for the major in which they are seeking an audition.
- A parent or an adult parent designee for the applicant must be in attendance at the pre-audition meeting in order to move ahead in the audition process. We allow another adult to stand in the place of the parent in case of emergencies/vacations/work, etc. But someone must be at this meeting to represent the student and get the audition time at the end of the meeting. The student applicant does not HAVE to attend the meeting but is highly encouraged to do so.
- The student must complete the audition process for the new major arts area.
If the audition is successful, students will be granted admission into the new major. If the audition is not successful, students will return to their original major without forgoing their admission slot. Students do not need to fill out a School Choice form.
