Admission to Dickinson is based on academic excellence, and all admitted students are encouraged to participate in the musical life of the College whether you are a major, minor, or non-major. The Music Department awards fee waivers every year to both prospective and enrolled students in order to help cover the cost of private studio lessons.
Music Scholars Awards are awarded to prospective students based on the quality of their supplementary admissions material (submitted via Slideroom, available through the Common Application). Students should be aware that there are different submission dates depending on application program (Early Decision I, Early Decision II, and Regular Decision).
The Music Department awards scholarships to current students who either demonstrate financial need or participate in our faculty-led ensembles. Applications can be submitted through the Gateway Student Forms menu and must be received by noon on the first Wednesday of each semester.
