Important Notice from CAS

To the UAA Community:

As a result of the Prioritization process, the Bachelor of Music in Performance degree is suspending admissions starting in the fall 2016 semester and this program will no longer be offered to incoming students. Students currently enrolled in the program will not be directly affected by the changes, but are requested to change their major to the new Bachelor of Music degree program in which 'Performance' is a degree concentration.

Please take a moment to review the Bachelor of Music in Performance Degree Change FAQ's to learn about how this change will affect you. 

To schedule an appointment with a Division of Performing Arts advisor, please contact Rhiannon Elliot:

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to continuing to provide first-class educational opportunities for our students.
