Prescreen Auditions

Prescreening applies to ALL undergraduate applicants, including:

  • Incoming Freshman
  • Incoming Transfer
  • Current UCI students seeking to change their major to Music or add Music as a second major


Prescreen Audition Process

  1. View Repertoire Requirements
  2. Submit your prescreen audition by December 31st
  3. Applicants who pass the first round prescreen will be invited to schedule a second round audition (either in-person or virtual, depending on the instrument)
  4. Applicants who do not pass the prescreen will be contacted with an explanation of available options to continue your pursuit of admission to UCI


*UPDATE* The prescreen submisison period is now closed.


Requirements for Undergraduate Prescreen Videos

  • Perform ONLY repertoire which meets the stated requirements
  • VIDEO links only (we need to see and hear you); audio-only files are not accepted
  • Clearly state your name and the repertoire you will be performing at the start of each video
  • Verify your links work and permissions are set correctly BEFORE submitting (we do not troubleshoot broken links)
  • If applying for more than one instrument, submit separately; DO NOT combine instruments on one submission
