Jazz Scholarship Requirements
NORTH CENTRAL COLLEGE JAZZ STUDIES PROGRAM
SCHOLARSHIP REQUIREMENTS & POLICIES
The NCC Jazz Awards are essentially tuition discounts. This enables us to adjust (increase or decrease) the scholarship amounts at the beginning of each academic year according to the individual recipient’s fulfillment of the requirements.
JAZZ AWARD REQUIREMENTS:
- Register each term for a one-hour applied lesson on their instrument/voice with the appropriate jazz faculty member.
- Register for and participate in assigned jazz ensembles.
- Maintain a “B” average in the applied lessons and ensembles that pertain to the award. Failure to maintain this grade point average will put the recipient on scholarship probation for a term, in order to make the necessary adjustments to bring the grade point average up to the required level. Failure to achieve this will result in canceling the scholarship.
- Attend all jazz studies events (student jazz concerts, senior project concerts, etc…..) including the JAZZ FACULTY CONCERT SERIES concerts. There are seven jazz faculty concerts presented each academic year. Jazz Award recipients are required to purchase a season ticket at the deeply discounted cost of $12 per concert ($84 for the year). Failure to attend required jazz studies events will result in a significant decrease in the Jazz Scholarship amount.
