Members of the Carolina Band are majors from virtually every area of the university, and most members are majoring in something other than music. All members of the Carolina Band receive a scholarship for marching in the band.
The band rehearses Tuesday through Friday from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. at the Copenhaver Band Hall (324 Sumter St.), a brand new $10 million state-of-the-art rehearsal facility.

Out-of-state tuition reductions
All out-of-state full-time Carolina Band students who are not already receiving a tuition reduction from other scholarships or sources on campus will receive a tuition reduction for the fall and spring semesters of the 2013-14 academic year. Based on the 2012-2013 tuition rates, this waiver reduces out-of-state tuition from $13,622 per semester and $27,244 per year to $7,500 per semester and $15,000 per year. That’s a savings of over $12,000 for out-of-state students marching in the Carolina Band!
