Prospective students planning to pursue music as a major or minor must audition for the music department faculty. Those wishing to audition for acceptance into the Bachelor's or Master's degree, undergraduate scholarships, or graduate assistantships should ideally do so on one of the scheduled audition days to receive full consideration, although we do schedule additional auditions if necessary.
