Admission Requirements and Program Standards

A departmental audition is required for all incoming Music Majors. Majors are required to take an Applied Music (Private Lesson) course each semester and earn ensemble credit by joining one of our department ensembles (which require a separate ensemble audition). Majors and Minors must earn a minimum of “C” in all Music classes. Those who earn a grade below “C” must repeat the course to receive credit. All Music Majors are assigned a department advisor whom they must meet with for advisement at least once per semester in order to register for classes and track degree progress.
