If you’re interested in the School of Music, you will need to submit the online application supplement. After submitting the supplement and other required application materials, the School of Music admissions office will schedule your audition with faculty members. The application supplement and audition will be used to determine your eligibility for admission into the School of Music. It will not be used, however, in the review of your eligibility for admission to the University of Maryland.

If you play the flute, piano or trumpet, or are interested in voice, you must also fulfill pre-screening requirements by November 1.

For more information, please visit the School of Music website or email Music Admissions.
