Undergraduate Advising

Current Undergraduate College of Music Students


Welcome to Our Advising Page!

The College of Music Undergraduate Advising Office offers academic advising to all undergraduate students interested in majoring or minoring in music at UNT. By working with an advisor, students learn about the many resources available to all UNT students. Advisors help students make informed decisions regarding their degree progress and educational planning.

Graduate students should seek academic advising through the UNT College of Music Office of Graduate Studies.

Prospective student questions may be directed to CollegeofMusic@unt.edu.
