Graduate Students: To make an appointment with Professor Joel Galand, please send him an email at galandj@fiu.edu

You can conveniently access the Panther Success Network (PSN) from your MyFIU portal.

Classes

All classes have transitioned to remote learning and include Summer A and C. This date may change, so the university will continue to communicate with you about this. Please monitor your FIU email and the FIU Homepage for important updates.

The School of Music has an advising team that is here to help students with all of our programs. 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

 

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.
