Special College Admission Requirements for Music at Texas State University


Admission to the School of Music is contingent upon admission to Texas State, successful completion of the audition process, and available space in each studio. Moreover, a successful audition does not automatically ensure acceptance to the School of Music at Texas State. Prospective music majors will not be permitted to enroll in applied music and other music major classes until they have been accepted based on their audition and met with an academic advisor.

**Per the Music Field of Study, we will accept eight hours of applied study. Two hour applied lessons should be taken each semester for up to four semesters in the same instrument that the student plans to audition with.

*** Major ensembles must match the instrument that has been accepted for admission.

For example, Instrumentalists will need a wind band or orchestra (string), and vocalists will need choral ensembles. Secondary ensembles will not fulfill this requirement.

Additional Texas State University Advising Notes

Texas State University Admission:

1. Submit a completed application, all supporting documents, including an official high school transcript and transcript(s) from every institution attended and application fee, to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by the stated priority date.

2. For students with 1-15 transferable hours: minimum 2.0 GPA in all transferable coursework and meet freshman admission standards.

3. For students with 16-29 transferable hours must have a minimum 2.5 GPA in all transferable course work. Students with 30 or more transferable hours must have a minimum 2.25 GPA in all transferable course work.

Students transferring to Texas State from a community college may elect to follow the Texas State undergraduate catalog that was in effect at the time they enrolled at their community college. Students may also, with the approval of their College Dean, follow a subsequent catalog. Students are reminded to refer to their designated catalog for information related to University requirements for curriculum, graduation, probation/suspension, and other general information.

Using this Transfer Advising Guide with Texas State University

This Transfer Advising Guide represents Texas State University’s degree plan and is subject to change at the university’s discretion. It is intended for advising purposes only so students know exactly which courses they can take at any of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District and have the courses count towards degree requirements when they transfer to Texas State. It is highly recommended that students meet with their assigned advisor to review all graduation and transfer requirements listed in the Transfer Advising Guide.

The ultimate goal is to provide students with accurate information for transfer pathways while minimizing loss of credits in transfer. Students are encouraged to review Texas State University’s requirements frequently.

The Alamo Colleges District Advising

Students are encouraged to consult with an academic advisor about courses and other educational concerns if they plan to pursue a two-year degree program, transfer to another college or university, or simply take a few selected courses. In addition to course and degree requirements, policies and procedures are subject to change; stay informed by meeting with an academic advisor regularly.

Many students who plan to transfer to a university are advised to fulfill the lower-division requirements for the university. With appropriate planning, your Alamo Colleges District team can help make the transfer experience a seamless process. It is the responsibility of all students to ensure that they take courses at the Alamo Colleges District that will be accepted by the senior institutions they wish to attend.
