Music & Dance Admissions
Acceptance into the Music and Dance Department (as a music or dance major or music minor) requires both academic acceptance by the University and by the Department.
All undergraduate applications require an audition (music or dance). Music graduate programs involving Music Performance or Music Ed/Conducting or Applied also require an audition.
NEW FOR 2018-19: The Audition Request Form is only to be filled out by transfer applicants, graduate applicants, current student applicants, and all students applying as a Music Minor. Incoming freshman music majors will fill out a separate Music Application as part of their UMass application procedure.
The University of Massachusetts Amherst prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, national origin, mental or physical disability, or veteran status, in any aspect of the admission or treatment of students or in employment.
