FINANCIAL AID

General Information

Students should carefully review and avail themselves of the information presented on the Howard University Office of Student Financial Services website. While the Department of Music does award scholarships and grants to eligible, deserving students, competition is rigorous for limited funds. Students are therefore encouraged to explore all possible avenues of financial support for their college education.


Department of Music Financial Aid

(1) Financial aid is awarded only to individuals who have been admitted by both the University Office of Admission and the Department of Music.

Flyer re FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

(2) Scholarships and grant awards from Howard University funds are available only to students who complete the FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID ("FAFSA"). This form is used to determine eligibility for student financial aid, and should be prepared annually by all current and prospective students (undergraduate and graduate) applying for financial aid.

• The FAFSA may be found online at fafsa.ed.gov.

• The FAFSA must be submitted before February 1st each year.

(3) Any financial assistance recommended by the Department of Music may be reduced after analysis of the student's file by the Office of Financial Aid, depending on:

• Other available funding sources (family income, Federal grants, etc.); and

• University and Federal regulations.

(4) The Department of Music is unable to award full scholarships.

(5) Prospective students are eligible for Department of Music scholarships based on audition performance and recommendations from the faculty.

(6) Music Scholarships are awarded for one semester or one academic year at a time only. Students must re-apply for scholarships each year. The Department of Music does not guarantee a specific scholarship amount from year-to-year. Additionally, please note the following:

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Continuing music students must successfully complete 70% of courses attempted each semester to be eligible for a Department of Music award the following semester. If the student has been awarded for the school year but then does not satisfy the SAP requirement in the Fall semester, then the Spring portion of the original award may be rescinded. Separately, if the Spring semester does not satisfy the SAP then the student is ineligible for a Departmental award the following semester. Such recaptured scholarship funds may be awarded to other eligible students. This policy allows academically successful students to receive additional assistance.
