Entrance Auditions and Placement Assessment

All new and transfer students planning to major or minor in music must audition before the music faculty on their principal performing instrument or voice prior to enrollment. The audition process is used to determine the student's readiness for entry into a music degree program. A scholarship audition may serve as a student's admission audition.

Placement examinations are given in piano prior to enrollment. The results are used for advisement as to course and program enrollment. Credit by examination for courses in the class piano sequences must be validated by the faculty and processed through the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance, the Testing Center and the Office of the Registrar.
