The Juilliard School
Exceptionally talented Columbia College students have access to instrumental
and voice instruction at Juilliard.
The two different programs available to students are described below.
Students can cross-register for instrumental and vocal instruction
with the Juilliard faculty at no additional cost after completing the
formal application and successfully auditioning at Juilliard.
Students can participate in a joint degree program that offers students
the opportunity to earn the B.A. and M.M. in five years. To apply to the
joint degree program, Columbia College students must have completed 94
points of course work, including the Core Curriculum requirements and
major or concentration requirements. Students then apply to Juilliard,
audition at Juilliard in their junior year, and, if accepted, enter Juilliard
in their senior year. Students accepted to the joint degree program will
spend their senior year as well as the following year living in Juilliard
dormitories, and those receiving Columbia financial aid will be subject
to Juilliard’s financial aid policies during their time at Juilliard.
Auditions for both programs with the Juilliard School are conducted
in early March for fall admission. The application deadline is December
1 for March auditions. Interested students should obtain an application
and audition information from the Office of Admissions and submit it directly
