Transferring into Music Performance
The steps below for transferring into a Music Performance major must occur in order. They apply to any student who has graduated from high school
and is attending or has attended WVU or another postsecondary institution.
- You must successfully gain admission to West Virginia University.
- You must successfully audition on your principal performance medium for appropriate
Music faculty for admission to the School of Music. It is recommended that you
schedule your audition before the middle of the semester prior to your admission
to the School of Music.
- Following confirmation of a successful audition, you must provide transcripts of
all coursework taken since your high school graduation. This comprises any study
in any subject at any institution beyond high school. May include grades for
any coursework currently in progress. Unofficial copies of transcripts are acceptable.
- Following approval for admission to Music Performance, you must meet with the Coordinator
of Undergraduate Academic Advising (currently Dr. Sandra Schwartz, Sandra.Schwartz@mail.wvu.edu) to complete the necessary paperwork to change
to (or add) Music Performance as a major and to complete appropriate course registration.
