Change of Major Policy
Policy on Changing Majors
For the 2023-2024 School Year – major change to take effect in August 2024
The Denver School of the Arts staff recognizes that during a student’s tenure at DSA, students may desire to change majors. We do not allow mid-year major changes; however, students may apply/audition for a new major during the regular DSA audition season. The following process will be followed in order to facilitate such changes:
- The student must meet, in person, with their current arts teacher to explain their desire to transfer out of the major and their intent to audition for another DSA major. The current major teacher will notify the teachers of the new major that there is a student who would like to move majors. The new major teacher may request to meet with the student prior to their audition. All of these meetings must happen before December 13, 2023.
- Between November 6, 2023 – January 8, 2024 at 5:00pm, the student must apply online for the major in which they are seeking an audition.
- A parent or an adult parent designee for the applicant should attend (or watch the recording of) the pre-audition meeting in order to move ahead in the audition process. 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, the student will be offered admission into the new major. If not, the student will return to their original major without forgoing their current DSA seat.
Students who are already enrolled at DSA do not need to fill out a School Choice form.
