Domestic and International Freshmen / Transfer Students

All applicants to the University of Miami Frost School of Music must complete the University of Miami Application, the Frost Supplemental Application by December 1, and a Pre-screening/music audition. Applicants wishing to audition for jazz or contemporary instrument/voice must pass a pre-screening (online) and be invited to audition.

Entrance for freshmen and transfer students is for the fall semester only. The Frost School of Music is not on rolling admission and does not participate in the University’s Early Decision or Early Action programs.

All students must be recommended for admission to the Frost School of Music by the Faculty Audition Committee. Final acceptance to the University of Miami is made by the University of Miami Office of Admission after all materials requested by that office and the Frost School of Music have been received and evaluated. Financial aid and/or music scholarships are awarded after the student receives final acceptance from the University's Office of Admission.

Transfer Admission/Credits

Admission as a transfer student requires a 3.0 grade point average from one’s previous school.

Generally, credit will be granted toward graduation for academic classes in which a student received a grade of C or better at an accredited institution. After a student has passed the audition and has been accepted to the University, the University Office of Admission evaluates the transcript and determines the University of Miami equivalents. During orientation, transfer students meet with the Assistant Dean of the Frost School of Music, who determines which transferred courses will be counted toward the desired major.

A music theory placement exam determines the appropriate level of theory. The Assistant Dean validates prior music credits. It is helpful to bring a syllabus for each music class taken at another school. Based on the jury exam at the end of the first semester, the faculty determine the level of study on the instrument or voice.

Preferred Method of Payment
The preferred method of payment for the $55 Artistic Review fee is a check or money order. However wire transfers will be accepted from International applicants if a check or money order is not possible. Please read the instructions and account numbers carefully. Your application will not be processed until payment has been received. Once the wire transfer is complete, please forward a copy of the receipt with specific information about the date of the transfer, bank name, etc. to the FSOM Office of Admission.
