Following is a sample four-year plan. Please note that student-specific plans may differ.
Admitted students must meet with anadvisor. Current students should also meet with an advisor and log-on to DegreeWorks to check student-specific program progress.
Minimum University Requirements
Grade Point Average (most majors require higher GPA)
Credits of C- or better
Credits of upper-division courses (#3000 or above)
All individual instruction courses must be passed with a grade of B- or better. All other music courses must be passed with a grade of C- or better. Music requires 3.0 GPA in music classes and 2.75 GPA overall for admission as transfer student, scholarship eligibility, and to graduate.
*In order to ensure that music students are sufficiently prepared for the Music Theory sequence required in all music degrees (education, performance, and therapy), MUSC 1105: Fundamentals for Music Majors (BCA) was established as a prerequisite for MUSC 1110: Music Theory I (BCA). All incoming music students will have an opportunity to try to test out of MUSC 1105. Because this test is administered in part through Canvas, all incoming pre-program music majors should register for MUSC 1105 regardless of whether they expect to remain in the class. Those who do not pass the test must pass MUSC 1105 with a C- or better before taking MUSC 1110. As this course is considered remedial work, the 3 credits earned in MUSC 1105 do not count towards the 120 credits required for any music major. Those students who pass the test will resume the Music Theory sequence with MUSC 1110 the following spring semester.
