How to Apply


Undergraduate Students

For graduate students, please see bottom of the this page.

Come visit us! A call to the Music Department office is the first step in arranging a visit that might include attending classes or rehearsals, receiving a short sample lesson, or eating a meal with current students.

Application to the Department of Music is a two-step process: the applicant must apply to the University of Connecticut undergraduate admissions office and also audition at one of the Department of Music’s audition days. It is best to file an application with the University before coming to audition. Please see our audition requirements. Music Education students apply as all other music major do.

Graduate Applications and Auditions

All graduate applicants in music must submit a completed application online to the Graduate School of the University of Connecticut. Other information and materials are required by the Department of Music depending upon the particular degree sought by the applicant. Please see for complete information about all graduate programs and their requirements.

For audition requirements, please go to Audition Requirements. Please note that if, after review of your completed application, the Admissions Committee for your intended program decides to invite you to audition, you will be contacted by the faculty member chairing that committee to arrange an individual audition time. If you are invited to audition, the live audition is a requirement for admission, even for international students. The general audition dates that appear on the website audition page are for applicants at the *undergraduate* level, not the graduate level. The one exception to this procedure is the Voice area, which does allow graduate applicants to schedule auditions, subject to availability, on the undergraduate audition days. For Voice, see the Vocal Studies page.
