Placement and Scholarship Auditions
In addition to submitting a complete application for admission to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, each music major enrolling at UNLV for the first time must audition in the primary performance medium (principal instrument or voice classification). The audition serves as both an admission entrance audition to lower-division applied study and as an audition to determine scholarship support. Transfer students must also audition in the primary performance medium and will be placed in the appropriate level of applied study based on the audition. Audition dates are scheduled throughout the academic year. Everyone who auditions on one of the scheduled audition dates will be considered for all available School of Music scholarship funds.
Admission entrance auditions are for those students intent on majoring in music AND for students of all majors who wish to be reviewed for music scholarship support. These auditions are not for individual School of Music ensemble placement. Ensemble auditions (for bands, choruses, orchestras, etc.) usually occur during the week before classes begin.
