Greetings from AustinThank you for your interest in the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music at The University of Texas at Austin! Applying to The University of Texas at Austin as a music major is a two-part process. In addition to completing an application to the university's Office of Admissions, all prospective music majors are required to submit a second application directly to the Butler School. The Butler School of Music application will allow you to request an audition/interview date and upload letters of recommendation, prescreening materials, portfolios and résumés, as applicable to your program.

The Butler School of Music gives preference to applicants who select music as their first-choice major. To be seriously considered for admission to the Butler School of Music, select "College of Fine Arts Unclassified Music" as your first-choice major on the ApplyTexas application. Indicate your preferred music degree (performance, composition, etc.) on the Butler School of Music application.

If you have questions regarding any part of the application or audition process and can't find the answer in the online materials please contact Sarah Borshard, Assistant Director, Admissions.
