Audition Day Information

Welcome to Audition Day


Audition Day To keep our communities safe, the university has canceled all in-person visits and events scheduled through December 2020.

We are in the process of creating an engaging virtual audition experience. Watch for updates.


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, you will also complete an application for the School of Music via Acceptd®. On that application, you will select your audition date.

Undergraduate Audition Dates

Check carefully when selecting your audition date. Audition dates occur in the same months as OMEA Solo and Ensemble contests. Please do not plan to participate in both activities on the same day.

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 2021–2022 academic year:

  • Thursday, December 10, 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 December 10 audition date on your School of Music application so that your university admissions decision is not delayed.
