  • Admissions: All applicants will be notified of their admissions decision as soon as possible after their audition. Please note, IU and the Jacobs School of Music have a modified rolling admissions policy. Therefore, some applicants may receive a decision within a few weeks of their audition or interview, and others may not receive notification for several weeks. All applicants who submitted a complete admission application by the application deadline, will have notification of a decision by April 1, 2015.

  • Financial Aid: Merit-based financial aid award decisions will be communicated via email by our office, by April 3. Please note, you will be notified separately from the admissions decision. All applicants to the Jacobs School of Music are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships based upon their audition and/or interview results, so no separate scholarship application is required for Jacobs School of Music awards. You may apply for need–based financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Feel free to contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance with questions about need-based aid.

  • Housing: Applications for on-campus housing will be available beginning February 5. Please contact Residential Programs and Services for more details.
