- whether to accept you into your preferred degree program.
- Please note that only a few students will be invited to perform a live audition for the faculty as we consider potential scholarships.

It may take several weeks or longer until you are given a final result. Some students applying to be Music Majors will be recommended to be Music Minors. Some students will not be able to study private lessons at K-State.
Some students will be invited to perform a live scholarship audition at Kansas State University during the Fall or the Spring. These auditions are by invitation only.

There will only be one available audition day in the Fall and one in the Spring.
Music majors and minors are required to perform in one of the Kansas State University Choirs. Auditions for the Kansas State University Choirs will be held the first week of school in the fall.
