Admission as a degree-seeking student in the School of Music is contingent upon a superior high school record and successful completion of a performance audition. Entering freshman and transfer applicants are required to audition before March 4 for admission the following September and may be required to submit a pre-audition screening recording. Transfer students are required to validate credits earned in musicianship studies (theory, music history and literature, aural skills, and keyboard) through placement examinations prior to initial registration.
All students are required to audition regardless of their intended major and are encouraged to schedule their dates and times after October 15 for auditions to be held in February. For audition requirements and a list of scheduled audition dates, please visit our website
