Oberlin has worked with six other premier conservatories in the United States to produce the online Unified Application for Conservatory Admissions. Applicants to the Oberlin Conservatory of Music must use this application.

Separate applications are required for the Conservatory of Music and the College of Arts and Sciences. Applicants who wish to prepare for careers as professional musicians need only apply to the Conservatory of Music. Students who wish to enroll in the double-degree program must submit applications to both divisions. A student may apply to both divisions and await the outcome of both applications before deciding in which division(s) to enroll.

The Conservatory application consists of:

  • the Unified Application for Conservatory Admission
  • two music teacher recommendations,
  • a secondary school report
  • academic transcripts
  • standardized test scores
  • supplemental forms / supporting documents (if required)

The Conservatory enrolls new students twice a year, in September and February. There are normally about 150 places available in September, and most new students enter at this time. A limited number of openings generally occur in February in the larger departments, such as voice, piano, organ, and strings. Applicants interested in February entrance in other private study areas should inquire as to whether vacancies are anticipated in their instruments. Late applications for both semesters are considered if an opening still exists in the appropriate private study area.

Application Deadline (1st Year): 1/15
Application Deadline (Transfer): 3/15
