Undergrad Transfer Students

The College of Music welcomes applications from students wishing to transfer to CU-Boulder from a college or university outside of the University of Colorado Boulder. 

Transfer applicants must pass an audition and have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher.  For information about applying and auditioning, please visit our Application Process page. 

College of Music deadlines for Spring admission are:

  • Oct. 1 – Voice, and non-Colorado resident Flute (prescreening required)
  • Oct. 1 – All other areas (the Jazz Department does not admit Spring applicants)

College of Music deadlines for Fall admission are:

  • Dec. 1 – Jazz Guitar, Voice, and non-Colorado resident Flute (prescreening required)
  • Apr. 1 – All other areas

NOTE: Although the application deadline for transfer students is April 1, we recommend that you apply by December 1 so that you may attend one of our Saturday audition dates in February.  Also, most scholarships are awarded to students who audition in February.

If you are receiving a music scholarship from your current institution you must submit a Scholarship Release Form before you may be considered for any music scholarships at CU-Boulder.  Students who audition will automatically be considered for our merit-based music scholarships.
