Undergraduate Freshmen and Transfer Applicants

  • Apply for Admission
    The first step in applying to Duquesne University and the Mary Pappert School of Music is to create an account. Once your account is created it can be used to apply for admission, upload any required documentation, schedule your audition or submit a recorded audition, view the status of your application, and more. Applicants will also submit official transcripts (high school or other colleges/universities attended) and official SAT or ACT scores (test optional admission is also available).

  • Register to Audition
    Once the completed application has been submitted, applicants will select an audition date or submit a recorded audition. If you've already submitted an application but have not yet scheduled your audition, please login and do so as soon as possible. Audition requirements vary depending on the degree and instrument for which students are applying. Students that have successfully passed their audition will receive notification from the Mary Pappert School of Music followed by an official letter of acceptance from the university.

    *International applicants: All application materials and official documentation (transcripts, letters of recommendation, personal essay) must be provided in English. Also, international students applying for a student visa must submit an affidavit (in English) from a financial institution documenting the applicant's ability to finance their entire education and living expenses while in the United States. If governments or parents supply financial support, an affidavit certifying the amount to be furnished must be included. Currency must be translated into United States dollars. Learn more.
