Admissions & Scholarships



Each applicant to the Music Department must complete an entrance audition before starting their program. Auditions are accepted throughout the year up to the beginning of the academic year. The purpose of the audition is to demonstrate the student’s musical and technical abilities for admission into the Department of Music as a music major/minor.
All admissions based on the entrance audition are provisional. Final admission will be granted at December juries or at the end of the academic year (April juries). If by that time the student was not granted admission as music major/minor, he/she should consider changing their major.
