The School of Music has an advising team that is here to help students with all of our programs. Prior to each registration period, incoming and continuing music majors are placed on an advising hold until they have met with their academic advisor, who will work with students to plan their schedule for the upcoming semester, process any necessary course permissions, and refer students to the appropriate faculty member if more specialized advisement or course placement is needed. You should meet with you advisor every semester.

Our advising team will:

  • Help you plan effectively
  • Work with you to identify goals and develop educational plans to reach them
  • Assist you with academic issues and help you find solutions
  • Help you understand degree requirements
  • Work with you to select and schedule your courses

Undergraduate Students

Our academic advisors are available to provide guidance as students work towards realizing both personal and professional goals. All students accepted into a degree program in the School of Music are assigned an advisor based on their major degree program.
