SPECIAL INFORMATION
FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS


A maximum of six semester hours of credit for graduate work from another institution is acceptable toward degree requirements, provided that the grade received in each course taken was no lower than B and that the courses were taken while the student was in good standing in an accredited graduate degree program.

No more than four semester hours of institute and workshop credit may be counted toward minimum requirements for the master's degree. No graduate credit is granted for courses taken via correspondence or extension, or for courses designated as remedial, prerequisite, or audit.

Qualified undergraduate seniors in Music Education may request permission to take certain graduate courses provided that (1) credit for the course is not required for the baccalaureate degree; (2) their cumulative GPA is no lower than 2.9; (3) before registering, they have secured permission from their major advisor and from the coordinator of the area in which the course is to be taken; and (4) they have been admitted to graduate study in the Department of Music and the course completed is accepted for graduate credit by the area coordinator.

Grades earned in undergraduate (or remedial) courses taken by a graduate student are also calculated in the GPA, although such courses may not satisfy the requirements for the graduate degree.

Any student whose cumulative average falls below the required 3.0 will be warned that the GPA must be raised to at least 3.0 in the next two semesters in residence. Any student failing to meet the minimum GPA at that point will be dropped from the program.

Any student who has been dropped from the program for academic reasons may make a formal, written appeal to both the Department of Music's Executive Committee and the Coordinator of the student's program area to review the case. If the Executive Committee deems to reverse the expulsion, the student will have to adhere to all stipulations made by the Executive Committee and the Coordinator of the program area. The student will reenter the program with classification of "Conditional."
