Music Scholarship Requirements
Voice scholarship recipients are required to participate in at least one choral ensemble. Wind and percussion scholarship recipients are required to participate in University Wind Ensemble. String and guitar scholarship recipients are required to participate in Orchestra or Guitar Ensemble (Jazz Band may also fulfill this requirement for guitar or bass). Keyboard scholarship recipients are required to take accompanying (either for 1 hour credit or non-credit) each semester they are on scholarship. Music majors whose major instrument is piano must accompany for credit for at least two semesters.
All scholarship recipients must meet the following requirements:
- Scholarship students will usually take private lessons on their major instrument. They must possess a good attitude, maintain interest and industry, and evidence progress through practice. They will be encouraged to perform regularly.
- Students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average in music courses over the course of each year.
- Students must avoid any type of probation.
Students will be evaluated by the music faculty at the end of each year to determine if the scholarship will be continued, increased, decreased, or discontinued. Current students who are not receiving scholarships, or who wish to apply for scholarship consideration in a different performance area, may contact the Department Chairman to request an audition.
