Theatre of Arts is an accredited, military-friendly college, registered with the VA for vocational rehabilitation. We welcome US Armed Forces veterans and military-to-civilian transition personnel, and are proud to have graduated many ex-military students, whose wealth of incredible experience helps them thrive in the dramatic arts—and acting in particular!
