Graduate Application

After reviewing these web pages and communicating with the faculty members associated with your graduate degree program, we encourage you to complete the following:

  1. Notify the Director of Graduate Study, Dr. Jo Ann Miller, of your intention to apply.
  2. Secure three recommendations from those familiar with your experiences as a musician.
  3. Secure official copies of all transcripts.
  4. Find a sample of your academic writing style, either from a paper or project.
  5. Complete your online application at the NDSU Graduate School.

For applicants in performance and conducting, an on-campus visit and audition are required. Following acceptance into the program, applicants will complete a diagnostic exam, which will be used by advisors to plan appropriate coursework.
