Music Application Timeline

Early Decision Candidates

Students who wish to apply under the binding Early Decision timeline should submit the Music Scholarship and Major Application early. 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 by January 8.

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. Because of the early timeline, we may not be able to accommodate a live audition, so you will be reviewed based on the videos you submit. This will allow us to provide you a decision at the same time as notification of acceptance to St. Olaf.
