All new students start the 2015-2016 academic year by checking into Manhattan School of Music on August 26, 2015. The check in process is conducted between the hours of 8 AM and 1 PM. During this time students will receive up to date orientation information,school identification cards and have an opportunity to complete any outstanding paperwork.

Orientation is made up of three distinct areas of focus:  orientation activities, placement exams and auditions. Orientation activities are designed to assist new students with the transition to studying at MSM and living in New York City.  There are many opportunities to meet new friends, become acclimated with the school, and learn about all that the city has to offer. 

On July 1 this page will be updated with information pertaining to the orientation activities planned by the Office of Student Life, as well as information from various departments, supplying you with much-needed information for beginning your studies at MSM.  For now, please join our Orientation 2015 Facebook group to begin connecting with Student and Residence Life staff and other new students!
