Step Two

Apply to the Department of Music (online) and register for an audition as early as possible following application to the University. The priority deadline is February 1. There is no application or audition fee. The application/audition process is used to gather information, both musical and academic, that helps faculty understand both the background and intentions of prospective music students. Students who are not yet ready to apply can register as a prospective student to receive information and be added to our database.
