  • Scores: Required for your application are SAT or ACT scores (if taken; required of Audio Recording applicants), AP and/or IB scores (if applicable) and TOEFL or IELTS scores (international students).
  • Recommendations: Provide names and email addresses for two recommenders. We will use that email to send a form to them. They will submit their recommendation directly to us.
  • Pre-screening: Many CIM areas of study require a pre-screening recording; others do not, but you can still upload an audio or video recording if you wish. Please review the complete pre-screening requirements.

Teacher preferences

You may indicate a preferred instructor in the online application.

If you have been accepted by recorded audition, we may postpone your teacher assignment until you have performed for the faculty upon arrival in Cleveland.
