Thank you for your interest in Southern Oregon University, where you will be inspired to chart your own musical journey. Our Music Program features world-class faculty artists who will inspire you to be more than just a musician - you will become an artist.
In the Music Program, you can choose to major in the Bachelor of Arts program, Bachelor of Science program, or Bachelor of Music program with an emphasis in Performance or Music Education. Please see our website for more detailed information regarding the Music majors we offer.
Please note that SOU has rolling admissions, so you can apply to SOU and /or choose to be a music major or minor at any time.
THERE IS NO MUSIC PROGRAM APPLICATION - only an application for music scholarship and MUP placement (Applied Music courses / private lessons). Students planning to major (or minor) in Music can complete a scholarship application (step 2 below) if interested. Students who have not yet auditioned will enroll in MUP 170. Please note scholarship application deadlines.
To be considered for a Music Program Scholarship and MUP placement, please complete the first and second steps:
Step 1: Apply to SOU
Apply for admission to Southern Oregon University. You do not have to wait for acceptance into SOU to be considered for a music scholarship. However, in Step 2 (below) you will be asked to enter your 9-digit SOU ID number. It takes 24 hours from the time you apply for you to be assigned your student ID number. You can begin Step 2 now, and enter your ID number later.
Step 2: Apply for a Music Program Scholarship
