Awarding Music Scholarships
The Music Department at Concordia University Irvine will not issue any music scholarship until you have received an offer for admission. Please complete your undergraduate application in a timely fashion. Music scholarship offers will be sent via email using your Eagles email address. Once you have accepted your offer and have made your deposit, please respond to your music scholarship offer via email.
The following factors will be considered by faculty when determining award amount:
- Most needed musical skill sets
- Level of proficiency
- Leadership potential
- Amount of need-based awards
- Amount of other institutional aid
Please note that if other institutional aid changes after a music/theatre award is extended, the award amount may have to be reconsidered as we have to meet tuition discount targets.
Music/Theatre scholarships renew at the same dollar amount annually, as long as students remain in good standing in their performance groups.
Note: Concordia University irvine is a Collegiate Partner of Lutheran Summer Music Academy. Any alumnus of that outstanding training ground for high school students will receive an annual, renewable bonus of $1,000 added to any music scholarship amount awarded (this will, over time, pay for the LSM Academy as well as some extra Concordia tuition).
All students with music scholarships will be internally registered in required ensembles, classes and/or private lessons before the first term of enrollment. This is done so that you cannot be registered for conflicting classes. Please note that all students are fully in control of their class registrations and have until Census Date (app. 2 weeks into the semester) to change enrollments.
In the first week of attendance, some areas will require placement auditions to determine your exact choir, worship band, jazz ensemble, etc. Please visit the Music department in the Borland-Manske Center for details when you arrive on campus for new student orientation.
