Undergraduate Programs

Live auditions are strongly recommended for all applicants. If live auditions are not possible, Zoom auditions are an excellent option, especially for international applicants. However, in cases where technical challenges or time differences complicate Zoom auditions, recorded auditions are acceptable and can be submitted through the Acceptd.com platform. No CDs, DVDs, YouTube links etc. will be accepted.

All applicants must complete two separate applications, one to Gordon College, and one to the Department of Music:

  1. Complete the Gordon College Freshman Application for Admission 
  2. Complete the Gordon College Music Major/Minor Application for Admission - or - Complete the Gordon College Ensemble Scholarship Application

Students must apply to the Department of Music by March 15, 2022 to be eligible for a music major, music minor or ensemble participation scholarship. Auditions run from November to April.

All music audition details and audition dates can be found on our webpage: https://www.gordon.edu/majorminoraudition

If you have scheduled or intend to schedule a live or Zoom audition, it is not necessary to submit a recording through Acceptd.com
