- CapU Music Theory Placement Exam (70%) or MUS 109 (C+) or Royal Conservatory of Music Level 8 Theory
- Ear test
Current Grade 12 students can be conditionally accepted based on final Grade 11 grades or interim Grade 12 grades. Students can upload proof of grades (e.g. unofficial transcripts, copies of report cards) through EducationPlannerBC when applying to Capilano University. Final acceptance will be based on high school graduation and having met the program specific requirements.
Note: All B.C. applicants must release their grades to CapU via the BC Ministry of Education at Student Transcripts Services (STS). Please do this as soon as possible.
First year students can fulfill the theory requirement by successfully completing the Royal Conservatory of Music Level 8 Theory (Advanced Rudiments/Grade Two Rudiments), by achieving a minimum grade of 70% on the CapU Music Theory Placement Exam, or by achieving a minimum grade of C+ in MUS 109. Please note that MUS 109 credits cannot be counted towards completion of the Music Diploma and must be taken in addition to the required courses.
Students interested in applying to the Bachelor of Music Therapy Degree can contact the Music Department for a list of recommended courses that should be taken in addition to the Music Diploma.
