Before you can be admitted to any music major, you must complete our audition and testing program at one of the dates indicated above (DecisionDesk applicants will complete theory testing upon arrival on campus). If you cannot come to WMU on one of these dates, please notify us promptly and we will attempt to determine an alternate date.

You must audition in November, January or February to ensure entrance and scholarship consideration. Instrumental and vocal studios are limited in the number of students that may be accepted. Admission is highly competitive. Students may audition a maximum of two times for any studio.
