To be considered for entrance into the UNF School of Music, you must apply separately to the University Admissions Department and also to the UNF School of Music via a live or taped audition. Specific audition requirements and procedures are outlined in the UNF School of Music Student Handbook. We are fortunate to be able to offer many talent‐based and academic scholarships every year, including tuition waivers, to qualified new and returning students. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a music student at the University of North Florida, please contact us at (904) 620‐2960.

In order to be considered for a scholarship award, the student must provide at least one letter of recommendation.

Important Things to Know


You should apply to UNF as early as possible in the fall of your senior year of high school. UNF gives out academic scholarships based on GPA and test scores, but you must apply to the University by the November deadline.

Getting accepted to the UNF School of Music is different from getting accepted to UNF. You will need to take an audition for Department acceptance and for scholarship consideration. Some students get accepted to UNF, but not the UNF School of Music and vice versa.

General audition requirements and specific audition advice is available by contacting the professor who teaches your instrument/voice.

Students can make an appointment with UNF Admissions to take a campus tour and can also set up an appointment to meet with music faculty and tour the music facilities. Some faculty members may be available to give a complementary lesson during your visit.

UNF School of Music consists of highly talented and motivated students learning in a focused, intimate environment. Acceptance to the department is based on the incoming students ability meeting our expectations for enrollment and availability for new students in our teaching studios.
