To be eligible to enroll in a music degree program at Miami University, you must

  • be admitted to Miami University
  • be admitted to the Department of Music

These are not the same thing; related, yes, but separate.

Admission to the Department of Music depends on an audition, which can occur live the Miami University campus in Oxford or via recording.

Each academic year the Department of Music conducts auditions on several specific dates. Campus audition dates for fall 2014 admission are

  • November 16, 2013 (especially for students electing Early Decision or Early Action admission to the University)
  • February 1, 2014
  • February 15, 2014
  • February 22, 2014
  • March 1, 2014

An audition on one of the regular dates is scheduled via this Online Form >>

No other regular auditions dates are scheduled for the current academic year, but a special audition might be arranged.  Please email or call the Department of Music ( or 513-529-3014) for information.

Each area, program, or instrument has particular audition requirements.
