See information on Admission to the University at the Online Catalog. All applicants should submit the required materials well in advance of the term in which they intend to enroll.

In addition to the regular admission requirements for the University, an entrance audition is required for admission to any degree program (including the minor) in the Department of Music. See information under Auditions.

Note also that the application process must be completed and that a student must be admitted (pending the final high school or transfer institution transcript) to the University before a scholarship offer can be made. See information under Scholarships.
