Have no fear - admission will be a process but we want to see you on campus, so we'll help you get started!

Here is the link to begin your application to CCM and the E-Media program, but we advise you to take the following steps to help make the process easier;


1) Download/read the CCM Application Handbook (PDF file, 428.3 kb).  It has all the information you are going to need.  Print this document and use it as a checklist for all the material you will need to submit. 


(Please note - the CCM admissions application discusses the audition process. E-Media applicants are NOT required to schedule an audition)


2) Contact the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) - There are requirements that you will need to satisfy in order to be accepted into the E-Media program, and the advisors at CCM will help you get everything in order.
