Admission Requirements

Admission Decisions

Upon receipt of the completed application, transcripts, and results of an audition or interview completed within the past 9 months (along with any specific department specific review), the Jacobs School of Music Admissions and Recruitment Committee may grant regular admission, grant admission on probation, or deny the application.

In exceptional cases, a student who does not have an undergraduate and graduate grade point average of 3.0 or better may be admitted on probation. Probationary students must be enrolled full time during their first semester and must achieve a minimum grade point average of 3.0 for that semester. Students who are admitted on probation and who incur an academic warning or academic probation during their first semester of study are subject to dismissal. See "Academic Standing - Graduate and Diploma" under Regulations and Procedures in this bulletin.

Applicants admitted to a master's or doctoral degree who are currently enrolled in another IU music program may be eligible to use courses taken during the final semester of their current program toward their new program if pre-approved. Restrictions are listed on the Music Graduate Office website:
