Important Dates and More Info in our ONLINE BROCHURE!


There are various forms of scholarship assistance at UConn; information can be found on the UConn admissions website. The Department of Music also offers scholarship opportunities based on several factors:

  1. Talent — based solely on the student’s abilities on his or her respective instrument.
  2. Departmental need — the need of the Department to balance studios and ensembles and to meet the curricular needs of all students.
  3. Specific scholarships — donor wishes to aid players of specific instruments.

All awards are determined on the basis of the above criteria, academic standing, and musical potential.

Note: scholarship students must be enrolled full time during the course of their academic careers, maintain an appropriate grade-point average, and demonstrate timely persistence to graduation.

Graduate Students

All graduate applicants in music must submit a completed application online to the Graduate School of the University of Connecticut. Other information and materials are required by the Department of Music depending upon the particular degree sought by the applicant. Please see for complete information about all graduate programs and their requirements. To be taken to the Graduate Schools application page, click this link .

For audition requirements, please go to Audition Requirements. Please note that if, after review of your completed application, the Admissions Committee for your intended program decides to invite you to audition, you will be contacted by the faculty member chairing that committee to arrange an individual audition time. If you are invited to audition, the live audition is a requirement for admission, even for international students. The general audition dates that appear on the website audition page are for applicants at the *undergraduate* level, not the graduate level. The one exception to this procedure is the Voice area, which does allow graduate applicants to schedule auditions, subject to availability, on the undergraduate audition days.
