Music Major Admission

Students seeking a degree in music at BYU-Idaho must be accepted as a music major before enrolling in first-semester major classes. This admissions process is separate from the University admissions application.

To be accepted as a music major, students must: complete and submit the Music Admissions Application, perform a solo audition, and take the Musicianship Placement Exam. Click on “Apply Now” for more detailed instructions.

After a student has been accepted as a major and begun taking music courses, they must be granted “continuing music major status” in order to continue in a specific degree program. This status is contingent upon successful completion of first-year coursework and competency in the student’s specific area of study.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are required to follow the admissions procedure outlined above.


The Department of Music offers merit-based awards up to full tuition for incoming and transfer students. Preference for scholarship awards is typically given to students pursuing music degrees, but in many areas non-music majors are also eligible. To be considered for a music scholarship, students should follow the admissions procedure outlined above, plus submit two letters of recommendation.
