Admission Requirements
Applicants must meet the admission requirements for the Bachelor of Musical Arts (BMusA) program, which include an audition and an interview.

Up to ten students will be admitted to the collaborative Music Recording Arts (MRA) program each year. Students will apply for admission at the end of the second year of the BMusA program. Students will be evaluated for admission based on their academic standing by a joint committee from the two institutions. Attainment of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to the MRA program. Entry to the collaborative program is competitive. The joint admissions committee will review requests for Advanced Standing on a case-by-case basis.

Those students not offered a place in the MRA collaborative program may continue in the BMusA program, provided they meet academic progression requirements, or may apply to the Fanshawe College diploma program in Music Industry Arts.

Progression Requirements
Beginning in Year 3, students must maintain an overall weighted average of 70% with no more than 1.0 unsatisfactory course attempts in any given academic year.

Withdrawal
If, after Year 3, students wish to continue only in the BMusA program, they will be permitted to progress into the fourth year of the program provided they have met the progression requirements.

If, after Year 4, students wish to withdraw from either the Fanshawe or Western portions of the degree/diploma, they should consult their respective institution to determine which credits may be applied in a transfer to another program within one of the participating institutions.
