undergraduate application deadlines

November 1 -   Priority Deadline for Freshman and Transfer Applicants

  • Freshman applicants who complete the FSU application by November 1 will receive priority consideration for admission and scholarships. Unlike applicants to most other academic programs, music applicants will not be notified of their final admission decision until after the audition has been completed.
  • Applicants who complete the College of Music application by November 1 will generally receive an audition on the date of their first choice, however, we reserve the right to close an audition room at any time once it reaches capacity.
  • After November 1, auditions will be scheduled on a space-available basis.

February 1 - Final Deadline for College of Music application

  • All undergraduate applicants must have completed the College of Music application by this date in order to be scheduled for an audition. Some audition rooms may close prior to this date.
  • If you are submitting a recorded audition, it must be uploaded by this date.

June 1 - Final Deadline for FSU application (Transfer applicants)

  • In most cases, transfer applicants should apply by February 1 - we cannot guarantee an audition or scholarship consideration after that date.
  • All transfer applicants must have completed all requirements of the FSU transfer application by this date.
  • Transfer applications are processed on a rolling basis, so completing the FSU application requirements early will greatly speed up your decision. It is strongly recommended that you complete the FSU application prior to your audition for fastest notification.
