In addition to your WMU Application, there is a separate Music Application form to request an audition and/or interview date and provide detailed information about your intended program of study. Prospective undergraduates must attend a New Student Admissions Day (NSAD) for an audition and/or interview to ensure entrance and scholarship consideration. This is an all-day event, so please check your personal calendar carefully to ensure you do not have any conflicts (e.g., school activity, solo/ensemble competition, etc.) when choosing a NSAD date: November 2, January 19, February 1, or February 15.  Although it is preferable to attend campus in person, applicants who live more than 300 miles from Kalamazoo may submit materials online (e.g., videos, scores) and/or make special arrangements with the faculty member responsible for your audition or interview. 

Before scheduling a WMU Music audition and/or interview, each applicant must first pay an initial $40 fee via our ShopWMU store :

After paying, you will be sent a direct link to our Music Application form which will allow you 7 days to apply for as many programs as you need.  After this time period, any changes of date, special time requests, or additional applications will be subject to a $25 application change fee. No changes will be made within seven days before a given NSAD date. For cancellations, a partial refund is available only for those received at least one week prior to your scheduled NSAD date. 

Please note that this Music Application is required in addition to your overall WMU application ( If you have already qualified for a need-based  application fee waiver from Western Michigan University, please contact to obtain a similar waiver for this Music application fee.
