Admission to Graduate Study

In order to be admitted to graduate study in the College of
Fine Arts' School of Music, a student must first submit a
complete application for admission to the Graduate
School (Students are referred to the section of the
Graduate Catalogue entitled Admission to the Graduate
School) with a copy to the School of Music. The
Admissions Office refers completed applications to the
College of Fine Arts and then to the appropriate Graduate
Coordinator in the School, and a graduate selection
committee will recommend approval or disapproval.

Although the student may have had earlier informal
contacts with faculty or the School of Music, or have visited
the campus for an audition, actual admission to the
University for graduate study is only accomplished by the
process described here. The application for one of the
program areas is reviewed by the faculty in that area, the
student's audition will be heard by performance faculty,
and the written materials will be examined by faculty in that

The exact deadline for completion of all elements of the
admission process for any term is listed in each annual
Graduate Catalogue [link to the critical dates page] Since a
formal application includes scheduling auditions with
music faculty or other appropriate documentation as well
as securing transcripts of previous college work, it will
usually require some weeks to complete. Completion
deadlines for Fall semester admissions are typically in
June. For Spring semester admissions, the deadlines are
typically in late October; for the Summer semesters,
deadlines are typically in late February.

If you wish to be considered for financial aid, including
teaching and service assistantships, fellowships and
other awards, you must send your request to the Director
of the School of Music by February 1 of each year. Early
inquiry is essential in order to be assured of meeting
these admission application deadlines.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required of foreign
students except for foreign students whose native tongue is English or who have
studied at a US institution for one year.
