Incoming students who are interested in becoming a major or minor should explore our degree options through the University Catalog and/or Academics page and review our declaration and audition process. Current students should reference in the information under the Current Student section below.

Incoming Music Students

All students interested in becoming a Music major or minor must complete an entrance audition on their primary instrument or voice. Incoming music students will receive advising during summer and fall sessions of Fall Advising & Orientation for freshman, and Transitions for transfer students. Freshman are required to attend a summer or fall session of Fall A&O to enroll in courses at WWU. Transfer students who choose not to attend this orientation are required to email Lee Anne Frahn to schedule an in-person or phone advising session to register for classes. This advising session should take place in early August to receive overrides before registration opens again for all Western students.
