ADVISING POLICIES

Back to Handbook

Students should seek on-going advising from their principal teachers on matters specific to their various concentrations such as choice of elective classes while in the Department, career opportunities, choice of graduate schools, competitions, special opportunities for financial aid or internships, and the like. Generally speaking, the music education faculty will provide this kind of support for students in music education, studio teachers for those in the performance options, and music history/literature/theory faculty for those in the Music as a Liberal Art option.

Mandatory Advising

All music majors are REQUIRED to schedule a meeting with a member of the Department's undergraduate advising committee before registering for courses each semester. Without this conference, students cannot receive credit for Music 20 and will have an advising block placed on course registration until advising is complete. Normally mandatory advising begins two weeks before students are allowed to register for courses in the subsequent semester.

Advisers

Eight faculty members serve on the undergraduate Departmental advising committee. Before registering for classes each semester, all students must see one of these faculty members, who will assist in scheduling courses and check to make sure students have satisfied all prerequisites for the courses in which they wish to enroll. The advising committee will also help the student maintain "satisfactory progress" through the degree program.

Members of the advising committee will be available at designated special office hours during the bi-annual (twice per year) advising period listed above prior to the online registration period for each upcoming semester. Watch for announcements of hours. Current members of this committee are:
