We are excited about your interest in the School of Music at USF!

Located in the heart of the USF Tampa campus, our School of Music resides in a state-of-the-art facility that is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music, and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. 


1) You must first submit an online application to the University of South Florida.
  • Submit application either complete or to be completed later.
  • Receive university ID number within two days by email.


2) You can then apply for a School of Music audition via GetAcceptd for USF.
