Undergraduate students will take a theory placement exam the day of your audition. Students who are auditioning via Zoom or video upload will take their placement exam via a proctored Zoom link. The exam will determine which theory course will best fit your skill level and does not affect your acceptance into the School of Music. You can take the test up to two times during your audition day. You will also be allowed to retake the test in May if you are not satisfied with  you​r original scores.
