  3. Students interested in the Sound Recording Technology major must complete an additional application, submit materials for pre-screening (see www.txstate.edu/music/srt for details), and interview.
  4. Admission to the School of Music is contingent upon admission to Texas State, successful completion of the audition process, and available space in each studio. Moreover, a successful audition does not automatically ensure acceptance to the School of Music. Transfer students' transcripts will be evaluated by an academic advisor prior to an acceptance decision to ensure that acceptance and successful degree plan completion are possible here at Texas State.  Prospective music majors will not be permitted to enroll in applied music and other music major classes until they have been accepted based on their audition and met with an academic advisor. Auditions are held periodically throughout the year for enrollment the following academic year. Those prospective music students unable to audition in person due to geographic distance from campus may submit an audio or video recording representative of their performing abilities that meet the audition guidelines for their instrument or voice. The deadline to submit a recorded audition is March 1 (for Fall admission) or November 1 (for Spring admission). Audition requirements are available on the School of Music website.
