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 Semester Admission are:

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

College of Music deadlines for Fall Semester admission are:

  • Dec. 15 – 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 January 15 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.
