Auditions are held in the Winter semester, usually during the midterm break. Late auditions will be accepted if space is available. Students auditioning late are normally not eligible for School of Music entrance scholarships.

Transfer students and students seeking readmission to the music degree program must audition to determine their placement in applied study courses. The level of audition should be equivalent to the jury requirements for the prerequisite of the course to which they are seeking admission. Jury requirements are available from the office of the School of Music.

Applicants whose level of attainment is not acceptable to the School will be required to repeat and pass the Piano Proficiency Test prior to registering for Music 1127.

7. A student who withdraws from a principal applied study course at any time in the semester shall have his/her eligibility to continue in the degree program reviewed by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies. The Committee shall determine whether or not the student shall be deemed to have withdrawn.

Such waivers shall not reduce the total number of music courses required for the degree.

17. The active participation in School of Music ensembles is an integral part of a music student’s education. One must be present at rehearsals and performances to have participated in the learning experience. Furthermore, the success of the ensemble as a whole is dependent upon the regular attendance and participation of all members in the ensemble.
