Undergraduate Music Application

Applications to the School of Music are submitted through the Music Admissions Portal for all undergraduate degrees (BA, BM, BMA, and BS). This is a separate process from your general application to Western Michigan University.  By following the links below, you will be instructed how to self-enroll in the portal. Once enrolled, you will be able to log in to WMU's Elearning system, enter the Music Admissions Portal,  and complete an online Music Application form by following the indicated link.  Your Music Application is used to schedule the date you will attend New Student Admissions Day (for on-campus testing, interviews, and/or auditions) and provide information about your intended degree, major, and contact information.


FIRST TIME: To reach the Music Admissions Portal you must first be enrolled in WMU's Elearning.  Please select one of the following options:

  • New user
    If you have never taken a course at Western or been issued a Bronco NetID (username) yet, you need to enroll as a new guest user within Elearning using your personal email address:   
  • Existing user
    If you already have a Bronco NetID (e.g., your.name@wmich.edu) from your WMU admission or a previous course, you can login to Elearning self-register for the Music Admissions Portal as an existing user.

RETURNING: If you already went through one of the two steps above to enroll in Elearning and register for the Music Admissions Portal, you can go straight to https://elearning.wmich.edu, login (with either your Guest username or Bronco NetID), click on the link for the Music Admissions Portal under "My Courses". Once you are in the portal, click on the application link to complete your NSAD application form. 


Within the Admissions Portal you can read additional information about admission day schedules, posts questions on our discussion board and take a demo quiz to acquaint you with the testing process. As part of your New Student Admissions Day at Western Michigan University's School of Music, you will be required to complete assessment tests in music theory and aural skills. These will be administered online through the audition portal, so don't forget your username and password. If you have questions or problems with the Music Admissions Portal, contact David Loberg Code at music-grad@wmich.edu.
