Undergrads - GC 210.  All incoming undergraduate music students, including first-year and transfer students, are required to take the Comprehensive Music Examination. It consists of questions from every aspect and level of the music program. Just prior to graduation each music undergraduate retakes the exam. The acquisition of knowledge by a student will be demonstrated by comparison of the two scores.

Graduates - GC 202 Study Guide.  Graduate students must pass an Entrance Exam before beginning graduate coursework. The exam includes music theory and music history and literature. Students who score poorly in either area on the exam are required to take remedial coursework before they can begin regular graduate studies. The Entrance Exam may be taken only once and must be taken during a regularly scheduled exam time.
