Admission to all programs in the Department of Music is by entrance audition only. All prospective freshmen and undergraduate transfer students must pass the entrance audition on an instrument or voice to be admitted into Music, in addition to all University admissions requirements.
It is expected that students will spend extensive time in preparation for the entrance audition: private instrumental or vocal instruction is critical. Students auditioning must demonstrate sufficient technical and musical skill on an instrument or in the vocal area to provide evidence of readiness to undertake college level instruction.
All students will be notified of their status by e-mail and post within 10 days after their audition date or video submission is received.
