Fees and Details

The application, all required supporting documents, and $150 ($250 for screened departments) application fee must be submitted online by December 12, 2018. (Materials submitted after this date incur an additional $75 late fee.) An additional nonrefundable audition fee of $150 (or $50 for screened departments), is to be paid at the time the applicant is notified of an audition date. This fee must be received by Curtis before the applicant is permitted to audition. All fees are payable in U.S. dollars.

It is understood and agreed that the submission of an application does not obligate the Curtis Institute of Music to provide an audition.

All admitted students are awarded a merit-based, full-tuition scholarship. The applicant, if accepted, assumes full responsibility for all other expenses.

If admitted, the student grants to Curtis the right to photograph and record, use, copy, and/or broadcast by audio and/or video transmission all of the student's (1) performances at Curtis and (2) classes at Curtis. Broadcasts may be used for up to five years after the student's graduation or withdrawal.
