Meeting your advisor

All students should consult their advisor prior to the beginning of each pre-registration period. Applied students (performance, conducting, composition) should consult their major professor. Musicology, theory, music education, and music therapy students should consult their assigned area advisor.

General questions concerning the graduate program may be directed to the Director for Graduate Studies. Any change in the course registration requires the signature of the principal adviser.
