*All prospective students who audition for the music program, and are accepted to Longwood University, before March 1 are considered for a scholarship.
After March 1 a student may still audition for admission, but will not be considered for a scholarship. See our Audition Guidelines for more information.
To schedule an audition or if you have questions, please contact the Music Office at (434) 395-2504 or email.
All prospective freshman music majors must audition and interview with the scholarship/admissions committee of the music faculty to enter the music program. This same audition also serves for scholarship decisions.
Early auditions and interviews are recommended for students wishing to be considered for scholarships; students desiring scholarship consideration must audition by March 1. After March 1 a student may still audition for admission, but will not be considered for a scholarship.
A successful audition and admission to the Department of Music does not, however, guarantee admission to the university. Students must also be admitted to the university by meeting the requirements specified in publications from the Admissions Office (434) 395-2060.
The audition could result in one of four possible outcomes:
Transfer students from other institutions must complete the same admission/scholarship audition and interview as described above for freshmen. Transfers must also be admitted to the university by meeting the requirements established by the Admissions Office.
Transfer will be determined through transcript evaluation by the Admissions Office. The amount of applied music credit that may be transferred from other institutions is determined through evaluation of the student's abilities by the Department Chair. Transfer students should confer with the Department Chair or Transfer Coordinator for the purpose of evaluating past college work and for planning the orderly completion of a degree plan.
