NOTE: You are applying to both UW-Madison and the School of Music. Admission to the School of Music is contingent upon admission to the University, so make sure you apply to general admissions before submitting your School of Music application.

The School of Music evaluates prospective music majors on the basis of their application and audition, but University of Wisconsin Admissions has its own requirements and deadlines.
