There are two steps to becoming a music major at Florida Atlantic University:
1) Apply and be accepted to Florida Atlantic University, through Undergraduate Admissions or Graduate Admissions. Prospective students should try and complete this process at least a few weeks ahead of their scheduled audition date.
2) Perform a successful audition on your principle instrument or voice (or, for some programs, submit a portfolio) to the FAU Department of Music. To begin this process, please fill out an audition application below:

Scholarship Audition Dates for 2022-23 entry:
- November 13th, 2021
- January 22th, 2022
- March 5th, 2022 (last date for Scholarship Consideration)
Starting in Fall 2021, we are returning to in-person auditions for admission and merit-based scholarship consideration. You can select your audition date when applying for an audition above.
If you are unable to provide an in-person audition, you must consult with the director of your performance area for permission to submit a video audition. You may be required to have a follow-up interview over Zoom as well. You will receive the same consideration for entry into the music program as you would in a live audition. To be considered for a merit scholarship, your audition must be in-person.
Undergraduate Audition materials, by primary instrument/voice:
- Classical Guitar
- Electric Guitar
- Electric Bass
- Orchestral Strings
For information regarding Graduate Audition materials, please contact Graduate Advisor, Dr. Marc Decker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FAU Department of Music awards a myriad of talent-based scholarships for music majors with high musical achievement and strong academic records. Scholarship consideration is based on audition performance.
