Thank you for your interest in studying music at Seminole State College.  Recorded auditions will be accepted for Fall 2021 through April 23, 2021.  Scholarships will generally cover five of your college credits.  It is important to find a payment method as scholarship funds are not available until after payment for classes is due.
