Guide to Graduate Studies


The following information will assist you, the graduate student, in meeting University and School of Music requirements for the various curricula leading to Master's degrees. For more information, see the Graduate Catalog.

Remember that you, the graduate student, are responsible for knowledge of and meeting all deadlines, as well as completing the appropriate curricula. You, not your advisor, bear the ultimate responsibility for selecting courses, meeting course prerequisites, and adhering to university policies and procedures.

Because deadline dates change from semester to semester, you should also consult the Graduate School website.
