Admission to the university does not guarantee admission into the Department of Music as a major. Students intending to major in Music must complete a live audition for the Music faculty and pass a Music Theory Placement Exam in order to be admitted into the Music program. The audition determines the student’s readiness for college-level instrument or voice instruction. Students must pass the Theory Placement Exam with a score of 80% in order to enroll in Theory I and Ear Training I. If you still need to audition and take the Theory Placement Exam, you may do this on the Friday before the first day of classes of the fall semester.
