Thank you for your interest in our undergraduate music programs at the University of Arkansas! We appreciate the time, talent, and energy you and your support team have devoted to making the important decision of pursuing a music degree. For answers as you continue the admission process, please contact our undergraduate advising coordinator, Stan Morris, at 479-575-3325 or email@example.com.
Please note that all students wishing to enroll as music majors must complete two applications, a University of Arkansas application and a Department of Music application.
All first year students, transfer students, and international students must be admitted to both the University of Arkansas and to the Music Department. Complete the appropriate University of Arkansas application found on the Office of Admissions web page.
Students may start their application for admission to the Music Department prior to being admitted to the University of Arkansas. However, acceptance as a degree seeking music major is contingent upon admission to the University of Arkansas.
To complete the application process you must schedule an on-campus audition with the appropriate music faculty.

Exceptions to On-Campus Auditions
