Thank you for your interest in applying to The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. All undergraduate applicants must complete both the UC Application, as well as our School of Music Supplemental Application, found here on Acceptd. The Supplemental Application will ask you to upload relevant prescreening media; be sure to check out the page of the program you are interested in applying to in order to see exactly what the requirements are. If invited to audition, you will also use Acceptd for scheduling and/or submission of final recorded materials.

Please see our School admissions website for further details regarding admission to our undergraduate programs. If applying to Music Education, Music Performance, or Global Jazz Studies, you will also find prescreening and audition requirements by instrument on those pages.

Please note that only applicants who complete the UC application and indicate a School of Music major as their first choice major will have their supplemental applications reviewed. Review of the Supplemental Application is also only guaranteed for that first choice major indicated on the UC application; please do not submit two separate Supplemental Applications, as only the first choice major application will be reviewed. UCLA only considers first choice majors at the time of application (not alternate majors), and does not admit students into double major programs at the time of application; all double major students declare the secondary major after admission. See here for more information on choosing a major on the UC application. There is a nonrefundable $85 fee for submission of the Supplemental Application, though this fee can be waived with valid proof of a UC waiver.
