The School’s mission is primarily fulfilled by providing educational opportunities which prepare students for graduation with Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees and careers in music or music-related fields. The School of Music strives to advance the art of music by promoting the research/creative activities of its students and faculty. It also seeks to enrich the lives of all members of the University and the region by means of a continuing program of concerts, educational offerings, scholarly/artistic exchanges, and outreach programs.
The School of Music has a limited number of music scholarships available for freshmen and transfer students in the form of partial or full tuition waivers for Fall and Spring semester. The awards are available to non-music majors, but preference is given to music majors.
The application process involves three steps:
- Prospective music majors must first apply and be accepted to the University.
- Following acceptance to the University, students should submit an application to the School of Music and set up an audition time.
- The student auditions for the appropriate faculty for acceptance to their chosen program of study. School of Music holds auditions on-campus four times yearly and by appointment.
