First year undergraduate students will need to schedule an advising appointment as a follow up to the audition and theory placement process required for admission to the Department of Music. Students must seek academic advising before they can register for first semester courses. Students should seek additional advising by appointment throughout the first semester.  Subsequently, all students will need to meet for an advising session each term before registering for classes. Please refer to the information below to schedule an advising appointment.
