College of Music Scholarships

The College of Music awards competitive music scholarships based on audition/portfolio review and interview. Your admission application and audition/portfolio/interview serve as your application for music scholarships.

Out-of-state tuition waiver

If you are an out-of-state student and you are awarded a UNT competitive scholarship or music scholarship of $1,000 or more during the fall (or fall plus spring), you are able to attend UNT at the resident tuition rate for the academic year—including the summer term. Learn more.

*The preferred deadline to submit applications and additional materials (if applicable) for fall admission consideration is the first Monday in December. Applications received after that date will be reviewed and auditions will be scheduled on a case-by-case basis depending upon space availability.
