To enroll in any music major, including music therapy, you must be admitted to the university and the School of Music. The school of music requires an audition. Typically auditions are held October through early March. Please see the School of Music website for audition procedures, dates, and requirements; furthermore, you can check with the professor of your instrument regarding appropriate repertoire for your audition.
Students who audition by early March for admission are automatically considered for music scholarships. The School of Music has its own scholarship fund and makes awards according to performing or creative talent. At this time, there are no specific scholarships for music therapy majors; however, potential music therapy students in voice and all instrumental areas are given equal consideration for scholarship assistance.
Incoming undergraduates are also eligible for university wide scholarships. See www.scholarships.ua.edu for more information. You must complete your University of Alabama application by December 15th in order to be considered for these scholarships. These are awarded to incoming freshmen; you are not eligible for these scholarships after you are enrolled at The University of Alabama.
