Student AdvisingEvery Music Major is assigned an advisor. Consult the Music Department Office (MUS BLDG 102) for the name of your advisor. Music majors are expected to meet with their advisor prior to registration every quarter.
Formulate a tentative schedule before you meet with your advisor (before you register for classes). If necessary, consult the sample 4, 5 and 6 year schedules on the Department website.
The Music Department maintains a file on each student. It is important to update this file each quarter with current address, phone numbers and email addresses.
