A sample audition day: what to expect.

A typical audition day begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. You will be assigned a Flyer Friend (a UD student) who will escort you to the various audition events and answer your questions about the University of Dayton.

During the performance audition, you will perform on your applied instrument (e.g., voice, trombone, piano). This portion of your audition will take approximately 15 minutes. Ample time to warm-up will be provided prior to your performance.

You will also be asked to take brief sight-singing and pitch-matching tests.

Other events during the day include an individual interview with the coordinator in your chosen degree program, an opportunity to meet faculty in your area of interest, and an optional campus tour. Informational sessions are also held for parents and students with opportunities for questions about campus and academic life and financial aid.
