Policies

Majors need to attain the following GPA requirements by the end of their sophomore year, and must maintain them to remain in good standing and to be approved for graduation. In addition, a music course in which a student receives a grade below “C” will not be accepted toward the major.

All music history and theory courses must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5. All music courses must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Following their second semester of study, each music major will be given a performance/progress review by the Music Faculty to determine potential success as a Music Major. Students are not officially accepted as Music Majors until this review is successfully completed and the Declaration of Major form has been processed.
