All qualified music theory majors are guaranteed teaching experience in an extensive undergraduate core theory program of written theory and musical skills, well integrated into supporting technologies. An Associate Instructor (AI) award provides a monthly stipend, tuition remission for a normal program of graduate courses, and insurance benefits. Doctoral music theory students who qualify can generally expect three years of financial aid; master's students can generally expect two years of financial aid. Teaching coordinator positions are awarded to especially qualified students; these positions include a larger stipend and more tuition credit. A personal audition is required for all Associate Instructor positions.
Special fellowship awards of up to $18,000 a year plus tuition are also awarded annually to highly qualified music theory majors. There are also special fellowship programs for minority students. A 3.75 grade point average for any college and graduate study is required for fellowship consideration.
Need-based financial aid is awarded through the office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
