Students who wish to Major in Music should apply directly to MSSU through the Admissions Office.
For those students (both majors and non-majors) who wish to apply for financial aid, there are two avenues from which to choose.
Financial aid based on need is administered through the Financial Aid Office. There are also other non-music, merit based scholarships designed for all students, and these too are offered through the Financial Aid Office.
Music Performance Awards, offered through the Music Department, are available for Band, Orchestra, Choir, Jazz Studies and Piano. You are not required to major in music to be eligible for these awards. The amount varies according to the student's ability and is decided individually through audition.
Additional Performance Awards are given to students who are members of the Lion Pride Marching Band and those who are selected for membership in the Basketball Pep Band.
Several Patrons Scholarships are designated for Music Majors only. These scholarships are of varied amounts. Application for a Patrons Scholarship can be made through the Office of Financial Aid.
Although MSSU has two scheduled Scholarship Audition Days during the academic year, you are welcome to schedule an appointment to audition for the Music Department at any time. To schedule an audition date and time, contact Dr. Jeffrey Macomber, Music Department Head.
