Auditions & Scholarships

Student Placement


All students interested in participating in the music program must take a performance audition regardless of intended major. These auditions take place at the beginning of the spring semester for the following fall. Our audition process is also used to determine which students will receive music scholarships.

The University of New Mexico Department of Music has many generous scholarship opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students interested in music. For undergraduates, there are scholarships for excellence in performance as well as specific scholarships for jazz studies, music education, and string pedagogy. For graduate students, there are many graduate assistantships and generous performance scholarships available.
