Prospective Music Majors: You may qualify for up to $25,000 per year in scholarship awards. Interested? Fill out and submit a NOTICE OF INTENT before November 1, 2014.


Cost is also an important factor in choosing a private university, so we want to let you know about special scholarships available for incoming freshmen music majors. These scholarships make the actual cost of a PLNU education much lower than you might expect.

·      A Provost’s Scholarship Award of $8,000 is available if your weighted cumulative GPA is 3.70 or above, and your cumulative SAT is 1150 / composite ACT is at least 25.

·        If your GPA is at least 3.80 and your SAT is 1250 / ACT is 28, you’ll receive PLNU’s Trustee’s Scholarship Award valued at $12,000 per year. This award is renewable for all four years that you’re a PLNU student. You are guaranteed the scholarship for two years; after that, you must maintain a cumulative GPA at 3.40 or above in order to renew it.

·        With a 4.0 GPA and a SAT of 1400 / ACT of 32, you’ll receive the $16,000 President’s Scholarship Award, also renewable for as many as four years.

·        Incoming music majors are eligible for a special Music Department Scholarship Award which is worth $5,000 to $9,000 per year, renewable for up to four years with a minimum 3.40 GPA.

When combined, that’s as much as $25,000 per year.

Although the Provost’s, Trustee’s, and President’s Scholarship Awards are guaranteed for all eligible students, Music Department Scholarship Awards are awarded competitively. The decision to award is based on an on-campus weekend of special activities. This Music Honors Weekend is scheduled for Friday, December 5th and Saturday, December 6th, 2014.

To qualify for an invitation to the Music Honors Weekend, a GPA of 3.8 or higher, and a combined SAT score of 1250 or an ACT of 28, are required.
