Study Guides for Entrance Exams

Students are strongly encouraged to study and thoroughly prepare for the entrance exams. Failing one or more sections of the entrance exams may delay the sequencing of required academic coursework and thus slow down the progression to degree completion, in particular the DMA. Registration is required, so please make sure you register for the exams no later than July 31, 2018. Click here to register.

If you are a current University of Illinois Graduate Music Student continuing to a new degree program (i.e. MM to DMA), and you have previously completed the entrance exams, you have met the entrance requirements; you are exempt from taking the entrance exams.
