Academic Advising

Advising is critically important to your college career.  Our department has mandatory advising for all music majors. Mandatory advising helps us make your academic career a successful one by guiding you through your Major Plan each semester.

Here’s how it works: each semester we do group advising, by your Option. This advising session takes place three weeks prior to the opening of the next semester’s registration. Any student that doesn’t receive advising will have a hold placed on their record and you will not be able to register for classes. To lift the hold you will need to meet with your advisor.
