Whenever possible it is preferred and highly encouraged that all applicants audition for our faculty in-person on campus. If you live more than 300 miles from SUNY Fredonia and cannot attend an off-campus audition, you may submit a video recording via Decision Desk.

It is important that applicants make sure recordings are of the best possible quality in both sound and picture, with appropriate lighting and following the requirements listed for your instrument and major of interest. Any recording submitted that is of poor quality may result in an unfavorable review by our faculty. Please submit your audition materials online through our DecisionDesk drop box.

DecisionDesk accepts the following file formats:

  • Video (MPEG, MPG, MP4, OGG, MOV, AVI, WMV, M4V, VOB)
  • Audio (MP3, M4A, OGG, AIFF, WMA, WAV, AAC)
  • Image (JPEG, JPG, PNG, GIF)

Individual files can be as large as 5GB, but keep in mind that larger files may take some time to upload. Upload speed is dependent upon both file size and speed of the Internet connection. Please be patient, as files larger than 50MB can take some time.

If you should have any technical difficulties in uploading your file, please visit or contact

Note: All applicants applying with recorded submissions must submit recordings online.  No DVDs or CDs will be accepted.

how to record your video with best results.
