UNC Charlotte enrolls more transfer students than any other school in North Carolina. The Department of Music is especially excited about helping you transition into our community, including transferring-in as many general education and music courses as possible from other institutions.
All transfer students who wish to major in music must first apply to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Once you have applied to the university, you must schedule an audition (see the “Admissions” page for details).
Students with four or more semesters of college-level lessons should follow the Repertoire Guidelines for Students Auditioning for Upper-Division Study (Junior/Senior Level).
Transfer Students with A.F.A. Degrees in Music
The UNC Charlotte Department of Music provides Baccalaureate Degree Plans to identify NC community college courses that lead to associate degree completion, admission into the music major, and baccalaureate completion in music.
Transfer Students without A.F.A. Degrees in Music
Transfer students without Associate in Fine Arts degrees in Music should visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for information about the transferability of general education courses. The transferability of music courses may depend on the results of Placement Examinations that are administered during orientation.
