In addition to the traditional careers in music performance and teaching, many other options are available to music graduates. Careful coordination of nonmusic courses with the requirements of a music degree can lead to entry into the music industry (music publishing, instrument and equipment merchandising,
advertising, recording, electronic music, computer graphics and more).
Companies often seek graduates in the arts for training in personnel management. More and more, students are using their interest in and love of music to earn music degrees that serve as preprofessional programs for entry into medical school, dentistry, law, divinity or other professional schools.

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
