School of Music

    Ready to audition for entrance to the KU School of Music for Fall 2021? We are offering rolling auditions via video submission throughout the Spring semester. Once registered, you will be contacted by the undergraduate recruiter with the option to set up a Zoom meeting with your studio faculty. You are not required, though strongly encouraged, to meet your teaching faculty after you have turned in your video. If you have previously met with them you may opt out of this when you are contacted.

    Music Therapy applicants will also be contacted to set up a Music Therapy interview over Zoom with faculty. This is a required component for Music Therapy applicants.

    Note: There is a priority date of March 15, 2021, for Scholarship consideration, though we will continue to accept video submissions for full music degrees and minors until June 1, 2021.
