Students wishing to enroll only in the certificate program but not a graduate degree program may apply for admission to UT Arlington as a special student (non-degree seeking). Admission requires an undergraduate degree in music or its demonstrated equivalent and would be contingent upon an audition for a minimum of two faculty members; GRE scores and letters of recommendation are not required. Students in this certificate program who later seek graduate degrees at UT Arlington may apply 12 hours of certificate coursework within six years of completion and award of the certificate, if they meet the admission requirements for the graduate degree and receive approval from the appropriate Graduate Studies Committee and the Dean of Graduate Studies. Admission as a special student in no way guarantees subsequent unconditional admission into a graduate program or into the Graduate School.
