Redcoat Band membership is open to any UGA student (Athens campus) following a successful audition--regardless of major, minor, or year in school! First-year students should not wait for their official UGA acceptance before applying.
Here are the steps:
- Apply for UGA admission. You don't need to have been accepted yet, but you must apply for UGA admission before going any further.
- Complete the Redcoat Band application. To do this, you will need your UGA ID (the 9-digit number starting with 81, which you receive when you apply to UGA). You will also need the name and email address for a reference.
- Complete your audition or audition submission. This process differs depending on the section you hope to join. Specific audition requirements are below.
The application/audition process begins in the winter and early spring--before the UGA admissions process is complete. We encourage you to review the requirements linked below and begin the application/audition process immediately, regardless of whether you have received your official UGA acceptance.
