Students who wish to apply under the binding Early Decision 1 Application timeline can submit the Music Scholarship and Major Application early. A live audition may be required, so we encourage you start this process well in advance of November 15. For Early Decision 1 students, the online music application is due November 15. Students applying under the Early Decision 2 timeline should submit the online music application on the normal timeline of December 15, though an early audition may be required.
Early Decision is a two-way commitment between St. Olaf and you. We pledge to give you the same thorough and thoughtful consideration for music scholarships and admission to the music major that we give all of our regular decision applicants.
