Music Admissions Results

As a result of your New Student Admissions Day activities, you may expect to be notified with one of these three possible decisions.


You may begin course work as a music major for the semester specified in the School of Music's letter of acceptance. If you do not notify us of your intent to accept our offer by May 1, we will assume you are declining and will withdraw our offer of admission. Likewise, if you do not enter the university in the indicated semester, you may be subject to a re-audition for readmission to the program. 

Waiting list

Your audition/interview qualified you for acceptance, but enrollment limitations in the specific program or studio have resulted in the need to create a waiting list for admission. Your name is now part of that list and when space becomes available, you will be notified of your acceptance to the major.

Not accepted

An indication that we feel you will not be successful in our music curriculum. You may not begin course work as a music major at this time. Feel free to apply again at a later date. Students may apply a maximum of two times for any program or studio.

Please realize that New Student Admissions Day relates only to your admission to a music curriculum. If you have not already done so, you should make application to Western Michigan University itself. An application to the University may be obtained from the admissions office. This is a necessary step for both beginning and transfer students, but is not a prerequisite to New Student Audition Day participation.
