Admission to the Music & Entertainment Industry Studies (MEIS) Department at CU Denver is a competitive process that considers the transfer admission criteria as well as additional MEIS application requirements, including scores on the Music Theory and Ear Training Exam and audition results (for audition track applicants only). The complete MEIS application requirements and deadlines are available on the MEIS admission website.
MEIS applicants are only considered for a fall semester start. The MEIS Department has an Early Application Period (Deadline of December 31st), a Regular Application Period (Deadline of April 1st), and a Late Application Period (Deadline of July 31st). Students are strongly encouraged to apply during either the early or regular application periods.
Students who wish to begin studies in the spring or summer semester will be considered for general admission as a Pre-Music student. If admitted, the student can start taking classes at CU Denver before applying to MEIS for following the Fall Semester.
