The application supplement and audition will be used to determine your eligibility for admission into the School of Music. It will not be used, however, in the review of your eligibility for admission to the University of Maryland.

If you play the flute, piano or trumpet, or are interested in voice, you must also fulfill pre-screening requirements by November 1.
