An audition is required for all new students seeking to enter a music degree program. At the discretion of the music faculty, an audition may be required for a current music major who seeks to change their music degree program (such as BA to BM) or add a second music degree program (double major).
Undergraduate Audition Process:
Undergraduate auditions for admission as a music major in Fall 2020 will be held on Friday, February 28, 2020. All students must pass an audition before declaring a music major. A new student may be allowed to take music classes in the fall with the understanding that they will audition the next semester for formal admission as a music major.
Students must fill out and submit the online audition request form to book their audition (confirmation will be sent to you from the audition coordinator). Students already enrolled at UAF or those who live within the Fairbanks North Star Borough must audition in person on campus. Those outside the borough may audition in person, or may submit an unedited DVD or a link to an unedited digital audition (eg. YouTube video or Google Drive file). Auditions should include two works of contrasting style and together be about 10 minutes in length.
Please note, only music majors are eligible for music scholarship awards. To be considered for a music scholarship for the upcoming academic year, new students must first audition in February and be admitted as a music major.

The following study plans outline required music courses in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor Music degree programs over a four-year sequence. Your course registrations will always be completed and approved in consultation with your music academic advisor.
