Audition Day Information

Welcome to Audition Day


Audition Day

Apply to The Ohio State University and to the School of Music

Visit Undergraduates—How to Apply for detailed instructions. Once you apply to the university (Deadline: February 1), you will also complete an application for the School of Music via Acceptd®. On that application, you will select your audition date.

To prepare for your audition, consult the School of Music Audition Requirements.

All auditions will be held via AuditionRoom®, a live virtual platform hosted by Acceptd® where students will experience an engaging "Zoom-style" one-on-one interaction with faculty. Details will be provided to each applicant approximately one week before their audition date.

Acceptd AuditionRoom® Student Instructions

Students who cannot commit to one of the audition days have the option to upload an audition video with their application. Though we highly encourage students to take advantage of the interaction that the virtual audition will provide, auditions in both formats will be treated equally. Visit Audition Requirements for instructions to create your audition video(s).

Undergraduate Audition Dates

Check carefully when selecting your audition date.

Are you a transfer student? On audition day, transfer students will have a scheduled academic advising appointment to discuss how credits from your previous institution will transfer to Ohio State.

Audition dates for the 20212022 academic year:

  • Saturday, December 5, 2020 *
  • Saturday, January 23, 2021
  • Saturday, February 13, 2021

* Apply by November 15 if you wish to be considered for most university merit scholarships. If you apply to the university by the November 15 early action deadline, we strongly encourage you to choose the Saturday, December 5 audition date on your School of Music application so that your university admissions decision is not delayed.
