Music Admission + Advising


ADMISSION


Prospective students:

PLEASE NOTE: ALL PROSPECTIVE MUSIC STUDENTS MUST FIRST APPLY FOR ADMISSION TO THE CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK AS A GENERAL STUDENT.

For all information pertaining to the application process and admissions requirements, please see the Admissions Office website. If you have any questions about that process, please contact them directly. The Music Department is not involved in the general CCNY admissions process; we are only responsible for the musical components (auditions, portfolios, and exams) after acceptance by the college itself.

  • No audition is required to become a B.A. music major, but performance on some instrument is strongly encouraged, and passing our Music Placement Exam is required before gaining entrance to required music major courses.
  • Students wishing to major in either jazz or classical performance must audition during our on-campus auditions in October (for spring acceptance) or March (for fall acceptance) or by recording prior to those dates if coming to New York City is not possible. Please see the links at the left for more information about specific audition requirements and procedures for your area of interest.
  • The Sonic Arts program requires no audition, but does have its own second-tier application process; please see their website for all the necessary information.

 


ADVISING


Continuing students:

Please check your CUNYfirst account to find out the name of your assigned departmental adviser.  You will be assigned a departmental adviser after you pass the Music Placement Exam, declare your major, and are actively enrolled in one of our music major sequences.

All music majors should meet with a departmental adviser during registration each semester in order to plan and approve their course schedule.
