Students who have received scholarships since freshman entry need not apply again. Students with transfer credit from other institutions and students seeking to extend their schedule (generally beyond 2 or 3 years) should contact the music administration regarding the number of years that their scholarship is available. Students whose work in academics, ensembles or performance is particularly exceptional may qualify for additional scholarships; likewise, students whose work in these areas is not up to the standards expected by the School of Music faculty may have their scholarship reduced or eliminated.
