Undergraduate Admissions (Columbia College)

If you are considering applying to Columbia College and have a specific interest in music (whether as a potential major or not), please contact the College Admissions Office with all initial inquiries.  The Music Department's office staff and faculty members cannot advise or answer questions on the specifics of the admissions process, and we do not interview or audition College applicants in person.  We are happy to answer questions about our curriculum and the performance opportunities we provide.
