Incoming Freshman, Transfer Students, and Current UA Students

Fall/Spring admissions: Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible during the year prior to attendance. The deadline for both incoming and current UA students for the fall semester is May 1. First attendance during the fall semester is encouraged because of the sequencing of required music courses. However, The UA Fred Fox School of Music does accept new music students into the spring semester. The deadline for both incoming and current UA students for the spring semester is December 1. All incoming UA students are required to attend a mandatory New Student Orientation session prior to attending The UA School of Music. Please call the Office of Orientation at 520-621-5293 to make a reservation for an orientation session. For more information, please contact David McGuiggan at 520-621-1454 or at
