For Campus-Wide Open House dates and registration:

The School of Music receives many more applications than we are able to admit, so we strongly recommend auditioning before the final date – especially in areas of highest demand: voice, saxophone, flute, trumpet, trombone, percussion, and Sound Recording Technology.

There is no music-theory exam component to your audition. However, if you would like to attempt to place into a higher level of theory and/or aural skills, see the instructions and deadlines here.
