Audition Dates

Registration deadlines for auditions are listed below for Fall 2017 admission.  Late registration for auditions will be considered only if space is still available.  Please contact the Music Department as soon as possible to inquire about the possibility of a late audition for Fall 2016.

Audition request forms are only available online until 2 weeks before the last scheduled audition date. Entrance auditions are not normally held once Spring semester ends on May 12, 2017 until Fall semester begins on September 6, 2017. In some cases, an entrance audition outside of the official audition dates may be possible - please contact the department directly to inquire about this possibility.

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 Saturday, April 22.  Please visit our Scholarships page.

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.
