This is a spot graphic on the performance attendance page.All music majors are expected to attend Music Department concerts and programs. To satisfy the Department’s performance attendance requirement, you must enroll in and successfully complete MUP 001: Performance Attendance every term of enrollment, except during the term of the capstone experience (seven terms). A grade of P (pass) or NP (not pass) will be assigned accordingly for your attendance at concerts, Music Convocation, Department-sponsored lectures, and other events approved previously by the Department. For more specific information concerning the Performance Attendance requirement, students are urged to consult the Department of Music’s Student Handbook.

For Freshmen

  • Once you have passed Performance Attendance (PA) for a total of seven terms, your PA requirement is complete.
  • You are not required to register for PA during your capstone semester.
  • You are only required to register for PA during the fall and spring semesters; summer registration is not required. Summers may be used to "make up" a term if needed, but it should be noted that successful completion during summer terms is much more difficult.

For Transfer Students and Students Who Change Their Major to Music 

  • If you enter UAB with no PA credits from another approved institution, you must enroll for and successfully complete PA every semester (fall and spring) you are a music major at UAB. For example, if you are a UAB Music major for five semesters (including your capstone semester), you must pass PA four terms.
  • If you enter the UAB Department of Music with one or more credits in PA from another approved institution, you must still pass PA for each semester (fall and spring) you are a Music major at UAB, except for the capstone semester.
  • You are not required to register for PA during your capstone semester.
