Updated Information June 25, 2021At this time, CMU has not reopened campus buildings for visitors. Those wishing to visit campus may schedule a self-guided walking tour through the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The School of Music remains closed to guests; you can check this website for an updated information session schedule and view our virtual tour

Audition and application information will be updated by August 1 and is anticipated to open August 15. We are waiting for the university to update policies surrounding visitors and events before we can finalize what the Fall 2022 application process will look like. When available, it will be updated on this site and time-stamped. Most audition/portfolio requirements do not change from year to year, so the posted information is likely to be accurate for the Fall 2022 application process.
