Your audition will include a short music fundamentals written assessment, like the one posted here.

You will have 10 minutes to complete it. The results of the assessment will determine whether you will begin your freshman year with Music Theory I, or whether you will begin with Music Fundamentals. If you are placed in the fundamentals course, we will offer suggestions for activities to help improve your theory skills.

You will have opportunities again to take an assessment in May at New Student Advising Day, and just before the beginning of classes in the fall, and at that time you may be approved to begin Music Theory I. Regardless of your placement, you will still be able to complete the degree within four years.
