Students will be given diagnostic tests in Music Theory and Ear Training upon arrival to campus. These exams are meant to help us place you in the appropriate level of each course. Your admission to the music department will not be affected by your performance on the diagnostic exams; however, the results of the exams may impact degree-completion time. All incoming students are encouraged to review the Music Theory Study Guide and the Aural Perceptions Study Guide prior to taking the diagnostic exams.
