The F. Ludwig Diehn School of Music accepts a variety of media from undergraduate program applicants via upload to Getacceptd.com, as part of the F. Ludwig Diehn School of Music Application. Media includes all audition video for those who are unable to audition live on-campus, and audio/video recordings for the composition portfolio. While DVD, CD, YouTube, or similar submissions received by postal mail or email are acceptable for the composition portfolio, they are not acceptable for entrance auditions and will neither be reviewed nor acted upon.
