Audition Update - Alternative Options for Admission

The music department is still accepting students by audition for Fall 2020 admission. All auditions will be completed online, either by real-time online video, OR by sending us a pre-recorded video audition by email in any format. You may choose which option works best for you based on your individual circumstances, although real-time auditions are preferred. To register for an audition, please fill out our Audition Application.
The Music Theory assessment and our Keyboard Questionnaire will be completed online as well, and information regarding those will be sent to you once you fill out the application. Please email with any questions.

Audition Dates

Registration has begun for Fall 2020 admission.

Audition request forms for specific dates are only available online until 2 weeks before that date. Please contact the Music Department as soon as possible to inquire about the possibility of a late registration if you miss the deadline for a certain date. Registration after each deadline will be considered only if space is still available. Entrance auditions are not normally held once Spring semester ends on May 15, 2020 until Fall semester begins on September 9, 2020. In some cases, an entrance audition outside of the official audition dates may be possible – please fill out the Audition Application and choose the alternate date option.

Keep in mind that space in studios is limited and auditions for acceptance into the program are competitive, therefore, an early audition date is recommended.

New incoming freshmen may audition for Department of Music scholarships on any audition date, with the exception of Sunday, April 19.  Please visit our Scholarships page.

Until further notice, all auditions will be held online. Dates and times will be set between the student and applied instructor.


Audition Times:

Students will be notified of their audition time about one week prior to their selected date.

  • Wednesday and Friday audition times will be determined and posted when available
  • Sunday auditions take place between the hours of 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The Music Theory Assessment time will be given to each student upon check-in.

Because each student is assigned specific times for each activity, we are ONLY able to change the schedule if we determine it is feasible to do so.  Please keep this in mind if you have another obligation on your chosen audition day.


Entrance auditions are only for those students who have applied and been accepted to the university who plan to major or minor in music.  Auditions for ensembles are open to all students and are usually held the first week of classes in the fall.
