Music Education


A student who wishes to enroll as a music major or minor at Westminster College, in any of the available degree plans, must fulfill the general admission requirements of the college and must successfully perform an audition for the School of Music Faculty. Students who are considering music at Westminster should plan a visit to the campus to view first hand the excellent facilities and to meet some of the faculty and students.

Initial visits to campus should be scheduled through the college Office of Admissions (724-946-7100). The college has set aside a series of Saturdays throughout the fall and spring as Campus Visitation Days where prospective students and parents may meet with administrators, faculty, and students, to discuss interests, financial aid, majors, minors, and extra-curricular activities.

Subsequent visits can be scheduled directly through the School of Music (724-946-7270). Usually the student attending a Campus Visitation Day will be too busy on that day to also perform an audition for the music faculty. The School of Music has set aside a series of dates throughout the fall and spring as Music Scholarship & Admission Audition Days.

For students who live a significant distance from campus, remote auditions are possible. Ordinarily, students must audition on campus if they live within 120 miles of Westminster College. Click here if you live more than 120 miles away and are interested in a remote audition.
