  • Information sessions are held at the Jacobs School of Music Mon.-Fri., from 10:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Click here to schedule your visit.  

  • Next steps for applicants: All applicants will be notified of their admissions decision by mail, 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. 

  • Financial aid: Merit-based award decisions will be communicated via email by our office. 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. 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). Notifications of need-based aid from the Office of Student Financial Assistance will not include merit-based awards from our office. Feel free to contact Student Central on Union with questions about need-based aid.

  • Housing: Applications for on-campus housing are now available. Please refer to Residential Programs and Services for more details. Graduate students should also refer to the University Graduate School.
