Early Decision Students and the School of Music

If you are interested in Early Decision and also plan to audition for the major and/or for scholarship consideration, please contact our music admission coordinator and read the information below.

  • Early Decision is designed for students who know the University of Puget Sound is their first-choice college and agree to attend if offered admission. Early Decision candidates receive consideration for admission, academic  and music scholarships, financial aid, and housing in advance of Regular Admission applicants. 
  • Early Decision 1 applicants who wish to be considered for music scholarships and/or a music major must audition prior to December 1, 2014 to be considered. Since this deadline has now passed, Early Decision 1 applicants are no longer eligible for scholarship consideration.
  • Early Decision 2 applicants who wish to be considered for music scholarships and/or a music major must audition prior to January 31, 2015 to be considered. Early Decision 2 students can audition by on-campus appointment, video-recording (must be uploaded by midnight PST on January 31, 2015), or at our regional auditions in Denver (January 18) or Los Angeles (January 24). Unfortunately, Early Decision 2 students may not audition in San Francisco due to the timing.
  • Music scholarships supersede other academic merit scholarships awarded by Puget Sound. Please contact music.admission@pugetsound.edu to schedule an on-campus or video-recorded audition as an Early Decision applicant.
  • More answers to Early Decision questions can be found on the Admission FAQs page.
