New Student Advising & Registration: School of Music
on becoming a Titan! The health and well-being of the Titan Family is our top priority.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and in accordance with campus protocol, all components of advising will be offered online or virtually.
Below, please find the steps needed to complete your freshman & transfer student advising and registration.
Step 1 for Freshman Students:
Make an appointment to attend a Live Group Advising Session with the School of Music's director, Dr. Katherine Powers to receive major advising and to discuss your academic plan. We limit capacity to 25 students to ensure time for questions and personalized support. There are enough sessions offered for all students to attend.
Step 1 for Transfer Students:
First, make an appointment to attend a Live Group Advising Session. We limit capacity to 25 students to ensure time for questions and personalized support. There are enough sessions offered for all students to attend. AND second, make an appointment for your individualized advisement with a School of Music faculty advisor to receive major advising and to discuss your academic plan.
Complete four online General Education (GE) Advising Modules to learn about GE requirements and how to register for classes.
Freshmen Only: All incoming Freshmen will have a General Education Advising hold placed on their account. Complete the General Education Advising Modules at least three days before your major advising session to have your GE hold removed and be able to register for classes.
Attend your appointment(s) with a School of Music faculty advisor that you scheduled in Step 1.
New Student Orientation: Freshman Presentation (Note: this is a supplemental resource for your use before and after your advisement appointment)
Register for General Education (GE) and major courses starting June 22.
Step 5 (optional):
After completing Steps 1-4, if you have additional questions about GE requirements or need help registering, attend a Registration Support Drop-In Session. We limit capacity to 25 students to ensure time for questions and personalized support. There are enough sessions offered for all students to attend.
Freshmen Only: General Education (GE) Recommendations
Music students should follow the recommendations provided on the General Education Module . Students are advised to register for at least two of the Golden Four GE Areas: A.1 Oral Communication, A.2: Written Communication, A.3 Critical Thinking, and B.4 Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning.
If you run into course registration issues regarding missing pre-requisites and if you met the pre-requisites, please contact Leslie Skinner.
Swap vs. Drop
If your respective academic department pre-registered or permitted you into a class, do not drop it without consulting with an advisor. If you need to make changes to these courses, for example, change the day or time of the course, then you will need to “Swap” the course . When you go to your “Student Center” you can click on “Enroll” on the left-hand side of the page. This will take you to a new page where you can make the change. At the top of the page, there are tabs with the choices to “Add,” “Drop,” or “Swap” but you will want to select the “Swap” tab to change your course for a different day/time. Keep in mind that the option to swap a course will only be available if the course you want is still available; you cannot swap into a course that is already full.
