Advising Information for Music Majors

This page will help you keep track of the required courses and course sequences for your music degree concentration. We encourage all music majors to use these documents frequently, and consult with your advisor each semester to ensure that you complete your degree on time.

Each semester, before you go to your advising appointment, it is a good idea to glance at the Music Student Handbook to see if there are items you should be thinking about or discuss with your major teacher. Music Handbook

Advising Procedures:

  1. Contact your advisor to set-up an advising session during the appropriate times each semester.
  2. Before you meet with your advisor, review the semester plans for your concentration to determine the courses you need to take.
  3. Preview the upcoming schedule of classes to create a tentative schedule, including course name, number, and section for each ensemble and course you plan to take.
  4. Bring your tentative schedule with you to your advising session. Your advisor may make recommendations or suggest changes.
  5. After your advising session, your advisor will clear you to register on OneStop. You may then log-on to register at the appropriate time.
