If you have to play a jazz standard for an audition do you have to play the melody or the chords?

Im auditioning for the Commercial Music program at Florida Atlantic University but for me to get in the music department I have to play two jazz standards. I play the guitar and I really need some advice.

    They will probably set you up with a rhythm section and ask you to play both the melody and the chords, as well as take a couple choruses for a solo.
