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.
