You are a graduate student if:
You have already received a bachelor's degree (or its equivalent) and are working toward a master's or doctoral degree.
Starting your application
Step 1: Before you complete and submit the online application form, be sure to review supporting materials, including personal statement details. (Use a password and PIN to stop and resume a previously begun application as often as necessary.)
Step 2: Pay the $75 application fee online. A $30 express-mail fee is optional for those applicants living abroad who want express-mail notification of decisions. Payment by check or money order is also acceptable. Applications received without fees are not processed. Application fees are nonrefundable.
Step 3: Send supporting materials (including the fee, unless paid online) to the appropriate graduate admissions office. Decisions cannot be rendered on incomplete applications. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all required documents are available for review by the program's stated deadline.
Step 4: Schedule your audition/interview or submit your portfolio.
All applicants to the graduate programs must submit evidence of having completed an undergraduate degree; all Doctor of Musical Arts degree or the Artist Diploma must also submit evidence of having completed a Master of Music degree or the equivalent.
