Admissions

All students who wish to minor in music, major in music, or pursue graduate studies in music must first apply to the university.  Undergraduate students must apply to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Graduate students must apply to the Graduate School.

Your audition will provide an opportunity for you to display your abilities, meet our faculty, and ask questions about the Department of Music.  As part of the audition process, you will be given placement tests in piano, ear-training, and music theory to determine which classes are appropriate for you.

The audition is the most important factor in determining whether or not you will be accepted into the music program. Please refer to the Audition Repertoire Guidelines and prepare your audition accordingly.  You should also dress professionally (business attire) for your audition.  Although students are encouraged to bring their own accompanists, the Department of Music will provide a pianist if you inform us of your needs at least one week prior to your audition. Pre-recorded accompaniments are not acceptable.
