Music Fees & Requirements
There are a limited number of scholarships available for students applying for AP/EA and Fine Arts. Scholarships cover the costs of tuition, housing and dining. All students are responsible for the costs of books, supplies, transportation and recreational expenses, with an average cost of $300. Students who are awarded scholarships will be notified in their decision letter.
When applying to the program, all students must audition into a Major Studio: instrumental, vocal or composition. Please upload an audio recording of a solo representative of your level of performance (vocal/instrumental applicants) or scores of recent original compostitions (composition applicants). Please include a summary or resumé of your musical training and accomplishments. Carnegie Mellon accepts pre-screening materials via upload to the Carnegie Mellon Audition Dropbox. This dropbox is also used for final recorded auditions.
