Every new music student will audition and take placement examinations during orientation prior to registering for the first semester. Students beginning in a summer session will audition and take placement exams during the following fall semester orientation. For information on the auditions and placement examinations, see the Prospective Music Students page on the School of Church Music website.
Normally students are not excluded on the basis of these auditions and examinations; appropriate leveling work will be assigned as needed. Continuation in the School of Church Music is, however, subject to faculty review and approval. Approved students will be notified of the date of these auditions and exams.
Former students who have not been enrolled in music courses for more than five years will also audition and take placement examinations.
