Graduate Music Application Process

  1. Graduate School Application

    All students must apply to the EMU Graduate School for Graduate Admissions. As part of the application process, official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended must be submitted to the Graduate School. Applicants must have an undergraduate degree in music or its equivalent.

    International students, please visit International Admissions for additional information and support.

  2. School of Music & Dance Application

    All students must also submit an online Graduate Music Application at least seven days prior to the audition date. As part of this process, applicants will provide names and contact information for two recommenders.

    (NOTE: Because applied study is optional for Music Education graduate students, only those wishing to pursue applied study are required to complete an audition.  Therefore, all other applications to this program will be considered on an ongoing basis.)

  3. Graduate Assistantships

    Graduate assistantships within the School of Music & Dance include work in collaborative piano, keyboard harmony, events management, and with ensembles (band, orchestra, choir, or opera). Applicants will have an opportunity to indicate their interest in being considered for a graduate assistantship on the School of Music & Dance application form. Visit the Graduate School to view a listing of graduate assistantship opportunities and to complete a graduate assistant application. Note: Graduate assistantship openings that begin in the fall term will be posted the preceding January.

  4. Audition Day

Audition Results
Official audition results are determined by the Director of the School of Music & Dance based on the recommendations of the music faculty and are mailed to the applicant, normally within ten business days of the audition.

If you have questions concerning the Music & Dance application process, please contact Dr. Donald Babcock, Admissions Coordinator.

Students with disabilities who feel that they may need an accommodation to complete the admissions process should contact Dr. Donald Babcock at  dbabcock@emich.edu  for assistance.
