Auditions are required for admission into all performance degrees and interviews are required for admission into all non-performance degrees. Auditions/interviews are primarily conducted on the Peabody campus, but some areas may allow remote interviews or recorded auditions. Please familiarize yourself with your department’s audition repertoire requirements.

Please check the Admissions COVID-19 page for updated information about COVID-19 protocols as they pertain to live auditions/interviews.

This page and all pages linked below will be updated with dates, locations, and protocols throughout the summer. Please check back in August when our application goes live for the most recent and accurate information.

If you would like to request a change in your chosen audition modality or have any questions, please email [email protected].
