   I have reviewed this application and supporting materials and, to the best of my knowledge, find the information presented to be complete and accurate.

In order to receive a music scholarship, a personal audition is required. Prospective music majors and minors will also complete assessment testing in music theory and piano skills on the day of their audition. These exams are for course placement purposes only and will not affect admission or scholarship consideration. Upon receipt of your completed Music Scholarship Application, a member of the University of Mary Music Faculty will contact you with the details of your audition schedule. Audition recordings will be accepted only from candidates for whom travel distances make a live audition impractical.

Students must also apply to, and be accepted at, the University of Mary and submit the FAFSA before any music scholarship offer will be made. Scholarship award letters will be mailed beginning in March 2014.
