English proficiency

Success at ASU begins with a strong comprehension of the English language. Because our rigorous courses are taught in English and move at a fast pace, fluency in the language is necessary for understanding concepts and expressing yourself effectively.

If you are from a country where the native language is not English (regardless of where you now reside), you must provide proof of English proficiency before your music application will be processed and before you may schedule an audition. The ASU School of Music, Dance and Theatre does not offer conditional admission for music majors under any circumstances. In order for your application to be reviewed, and to be scheduled for an audition/interview, you must submit proof of English proficiency by the application deadline.
