View area requirements regarding undergraduate auditions.
Students must meet the entrance requirements of the University and must not have accepted a scholarship from another university.
Scholarships are awarded in all areas of study in the School of Music to qualified students, and in some areas, to both majors and non-majors.
Several forms of financial aid are available to students. This aid may be received in the form of a direct scholarship, grant, loan, college work-study job, or a combination of these programs. Students are encouraged to review additional scholarships offered through the university for which they may well qualify. Some scholarships are based on class rank or transferring college GPA. Most applications for university scholarships must be filed with the Office of Student Financial Assistance no later than February 1.
