General Information

You will need to apply for admission to Coastal Carolina University prior to scheduling your audition. More information about deadlines for applications to the university can be found at the Coastal Carolina Admissions.  Once you have submitted your application, you may schedule your audition.  To secure your preferred audition date, you should apply as soon as possible.
The audition is for entrance into the music major, not for placement into Coastal Carolina music ensembles.  All auditions will be considered for scholarship and stipend awards.

The audition is not for individual ensemble placement rather, these auditions are for those who have a desire to major or minor in music and all students who would like to be reviewed for scholarship and stipend awards.

How to apply to the Music Department

Apply for Admission to the University through the Office of Admissions. The online application is available through Admissions.  If you would prefer an application to be mailed to you, please call 800-277-7000 or email us at admissions@coastal.edu.

Schedule your audition with the CCU Music Department.  An audition is required for admittance as a music major (majors and minors) and for scholarship awards. We have several dates available for scheduling on-campus auditions. 

We strongly encourage students to perform live auditions whenever possible.

If you are unable to travel to campus for a live audition, you may submit a pre-recorded audition on CD or sound file (preferably mp3) by March 1 via email or postal mail. Please mail all audition materials to Paula Gwaltney, Administrative Specialist, CCU Music Department Auditions, PO Box 261954, 133 Chanticleer Dr., Conway, SC 29526 or to pgwaltney@coastal.edu.
