Whether it's just checking out our Creative Campus or formally starting your music industry career, your first step should be to complete our online Information Request Form. This “gets you in the system” and allows us to provide you with the best information based on your needs.
Attending a "Backstage @GROOVE U" Campus Visit Day is probably the best way for you to see what we are all about. Plus, these often coincide with a cool campus event. If a scheduled information session doesn’t work for you, we can arrange a private session as well.
If you believe we are the right choice for you in your pursuit of a music industry career, your next step is to complete the online Student Application Form. When you submit this form, we require a non-refundable Student Application Fee to start processing your Student Application.
Once you submit your Student Application Form and Student Application Fee, we will contact you to gather some additional information and schedule your Admissions Session.
Just like you, we're unique. That's why we will schedule a one-on-one Admissions Session with you as part of our admissions process. You will complete an in-person essay (don't worry, the topic is about you and music not about the Pythagorean Theorem) and an in-person interview with a staff member — it’s not an interrogation, it’s a conversation.
This is also your chance to quiz us about any remaining questions you have about being a student with us, so go ahead and try and stump us. Our job is to help you determine whether or not we are the best fit.
If you have any outstanding materials, bring them with you to the Admissions Session to ensure your application processing isn't delayed. Your application won't be reviewed for an Admissions Decision until we have all required materials.
You should budget 1.5–2.5 hours for the Admissions Session, depending upon individual requirements and comfort level.
After you complete the Admissions Session and after we have verified all necessary materials, we conduct an Internal Review of your entire application.
Our Admissions Decisions fall into one of three categories.
You will then be notified of which category via a letter sent via First Class USPS mail.
This entire process typically takes 7-10 business days.
Provided you fall into an Accepted category, the next step is up to you. We require a Student Tuition Deposit of $1300 within 30 days to reserve your spot in our next graduating class. We fill-up classes among our accepted students on a first-come, first-served basis so if want to ensure you have a seat in the Fall it's best to get your deposit in early to avoid being waitlisted.
Once we receive your Student Tuition Deposit, keep an eye out for our Welcome Packet in the mail. Once you receive it, we're going to ask you to tweet @grooveu, so make sure you are following us on Twitter. After that, we conduct most of our communication via email in order to be as environmentally responsible as possible. So make sure you are regularly checking your email for details about about student housing, student orientation, special events, etc.
