Music Degree Auditions

Music Degree Auditions

At UIC, we are interested in the musical backgrounds and passions you can bring to our program as well as the extent of your formal training, whatever that may be. We recognize that there are many paths to music study.

Auditions/interviews are required for entrance into all music degree programs. Audition requirements differ by degree and musical background.

Fall 2024 Music Degree Audition Dates

We are still accepting applications and auditions for the Fall 2024 term. If you would like to schedule a time to audition in person, please email us at and we’d be happy to arrange this. You can also submit a recorded audition in lieu of coming to campus.

On the Day of your Audition

On the day of your audition, we will meet you on the lower level of the ETMSW building. Our building is accessible via the CTA Blue Line (Morgan stop). If you prefer driving, there is a parking garage just west of our building. Warmup space will be available at least 30 minutes before your audition time.

The information above is only for those individuals interested in enrolling in a music degree program. If you are interested in any of our music ensembles, information can be found on the Ensemble Auditions page
