Music MM – Music Education Emphasis – Online Delivery

Get Started – You Can begin the Online Program Any Term

You can start this program Summer, Fall or Spring term. Many choose to start during the Summer term, which allows them to meet their instructors and fellow students. But we offer admission any term for those who want to get started right away.

U.S. applicants (outside of Colorado) for online programs: please be sure to check your eligibility by state of residence.

Application Deadline

We recommend that you apply at least 60 days before the start of your first semester, but you can contact the Program Coordinator to confirm upcoming deadlines.

Application Process

A completed application typically takes four to six weeks to process. The application process and necessary forms are available on the UNC School of Music's How to Apply page (button below). When you begin the UNC Graduate School Application, choose Music M.M. - Music Education Emphasis (Extended Campus) as your academic program of interest.

International Students

All international (non-U.S. citizen) applicants should mark Yes for "Are you an international student?" at the beginning of the graduate application process. In addition to any application steps listed above, you will also need to prepare the following for your application:

  • Demonstration of Language proficiency – either a Qualifying test score (TOEFL iBT: 80, IELTS: 6.5, PTE: 60) or a petition for exemption. UNC's institutional code for TOEFL is 4074.
  • Copy of passport bio/photo page * 
  • Financial Documentation * # – we will need to verify that you can pay the estimated costs (tuition, fees, room, board, insurance, books, supplies, travel) for the time you will be in the U.S. Those applying to programs that last longer than 1 year will only need to provide proof for the first year at the time of application.

* = Items marked with * are only required for applicants who will be coming to the United States.

# = Items marked with # are not required with your initial application. You will submit them after you have been admitted to UNC.
