If you have not already applied and gained acceptance to the Frost School of Music master’s degree program you are interested in, follow these steps.

  • Complete your application for admission before the next application deadline.
  • Complete online application and submit application fee
  • Submit official transcripts. Official transcripts record all courses, bachelor's degrees or highest degree conferred by a regionally or nationally accredited institution. Official transcripts are sealed transcripts sent from the granting institution.
  • 3.00 Grade Point Average (GPA) in all undergraduate and graduate work. (GPA is a minimum requirement, and does not guarantee admittance into the program.)

  • Top applicants will be ranked and admitted based on space availability.

Transcripts are evaluated in consideration of the Coordinating Board Field of Study Curriculum (FOSC) guidelines. Credit is given for all courses listed in the FOSC guidelines as transferable, as well as any additional courses that may apply for transfer.

Step 4: Complete required coursework for credit to be applied

Once you have been accepted into the Frost School of Music master’s degree program, you must successfully complete the MMI 530 Entrepreneurship for Musicians course and any associated prerequisites. Credit will be applied once these requirements are satisfied.
