Application Process

New students are admitted to the School of Music for the fall semester only. The deadline for applications for fall semester is the preceding 15 January. Late applications are considered under special circumstances and on instruments or voice where space is available.

For New Students:

You will apply to Memorial University online. During the application you will be asked to:

  • Select your audition instrument. If you are auditioning under more than one instrument, you will need to complete a separate application for each.
  • Print or download the Teacher Reference form. Ask a musician who knows you well if she or he would be willing to write a reference for you. (For example, your current private music teacher, school music teacher, choir or band conductor.) Provide your referee with the "teacher reference form" and request that she or he complete and return it to the Office of the Registrar (see address below) before 15 February.
  • Type your summary of musical experiences and objectives.
  • Submit official academic records from high school or other post-secondary institutions, if applicable to:

The Office of the Registrar
Memorial University of Newfoundland
St. John’s, NL A1C 5S7

Note: while filling out your application, you will be asked to indicate whether you intend to attend the St. John’s audition or whether you intend to apply by distance. If you are not able to attend the St. John's audition mark "distance". Email us at to indicate whether you will audition by CD/DVD/video upload or by live videoconferencing.”
