Prospective Students

Luther College is committed to the idea that music is important in the lives of all students. Any student, regardless of major, is eligible to audition for a music scholarship, be in an ensemble, and take private lessons. More than half of the 1,000 students taking private lessons are majors in other areas.

Scholarship auditions must take place prior to March 7, 2015. Prospective students may schedule an audition with the Admissions Office (1-800-458-8437) or register online.

Transfer Students

Prior to registration, all transfer students must make an appointment with the music department head to determine music transfer credits. Transfer students expecting to receive credit in music theory, music history, or ear training must make an appointment with the music faculty. All transfer students must also perform an audition on their primary instrument.

Any transfer student expecting to graduate with a music major at Luther College must complete at least 8 hours of coursework in the department and at least 3 semesters of private lesson study.
