The Frost School of Music and the University of Miami are proud to offer a full range of financial assistance packages rewarding both musically and academically talented students. In addition, based on demonstrated need, students may be considered for state and federal grant, federal loan programs, and college work-study.
For priority consideration, freshman and transfer applicants must apply to the University of Miami and submit the Frost School of Music supplemental application by December 1st and successfully complete the audition before March 1. There is no separate scholarship application. Musical ability and academic performance are considered in determining scholarship eligibility and awards. In some cases, financial need may also be considered in making such determinations. All music scholarships are applied only to tuition.
There are many ways to make a University of Miami education affordable. Whether your interest is in scholarships, assistance that takes into account your financial situation, or long- and short-term financial goals, there are options to explore. It is estimated that University of Miami students received approximately $420 million in financial assistance in the 2013-2014 school year.
To be considered for all types of need-based aid, students must submit both the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE (PROFILE).
1. FAFSA is used to determine your eligibility for state and federal need-based aid including direct loans, federal work study and grants.
2. CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE is used to determine your eligibility for University of Miami institutional need-based funds.
The total of all sources of aid, scholarships, grants, loans, etc., cannot exceed the total cost of attendance, and in some cases is limited by need.
Music scholarships, available only to full-time music majors, are talent-based and are given for performance ability as demonstrated through the audition. Criterion for Consideration: Recommendation by Music Faculty.
