Additional Notes

  • Please be aware that follow-up auditions and interviews are only requested if the faculty would like more information on an applicant that would warrant a callback. Not being asked to interview does not mean that you have been rejected from NYU.
  • Though NYU's deadline for Spring transfer admission is November 1 and our deadline for Summer/Fall transfer admission is April 1, we suggest that you submit your Common Application one month in advance. Submitting your Common Application early will leave you more time to schedule an audition by our deadlines above.

Audition Requirements

Two contrasting études, one solo, and two orchestral excerpts.
