We recommend you complete the Music Recommendation request for your teacher RIGHT AWAY. This recommendation request goes out immediately (it does not wait for you to submit the whole application) and will give your teacher time to write and submit the recommendation while you are preparing other parts of the music application.

NOTE: St. Olaf’s music application process is not part of the Common App. Only music applications submitted via the Online Music Application will be reviewed, unless alternate means are approved in advance by the Music Admissions Coordinator.
