Admission Requirements

Transcript, GRE

A transcript of all previous college and university work must accompany the application. Transcripts from outside the United States are evaluated by the Office of International Services and must be accompanied by a certified English translation if originally issued in a different language.

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required for admission to the Jacobs School of Music. Students who have taken the test, however, are welcome to submit the score and it will be reviewed—on an optional basis—in conjunction with application to the graduate programs in Music Theory, Musicology, and Music Education.
