Awards for Continuing Students

 

Current Music Major Award Renewal Process

Current music award recipients will no longer be asked to apply for renewal on the Acceptd platform, but will instead have their award renewal agreements sent directly by email based on the renewal recommendation of the faculty and a review of each student's eligibility.  Award renewals are communicated by the end of May each year.

Please note – UNT music majors wishing to apply for a new program within the College of Music must complete a full application for the new program within the Acceptd platform.
