Audition Information

Students pursuing a degree in music are required to complete an audition for acceptance into their desired music specialization area. This audition process is separate from those held for the South Carolina State University choral and instrumental groups. Students must exhibit demonstrated potential for a successful career in Music Education or Music Industry through basic proficiency on their chosen instrument and provide verification of solo or ensemble experience. Additionally, a diagnostic theory entrance examination is given for placement into the proper theory class for transfer students. All majors complete a sophomore examination.

For Spring Semester
Sept. 1 – Dec. 1
