Enrollment Deadline for Conservatory Students. A Conservatory student who wishes to enroll later than the official deadline set by the Office of the Registrar must have the approval of his/her Conservatory advisor(s), division director, and the Assistant Dean. Students will not be allowed to enroll later than the last day of the Add/Drop period (usually two weeks into the semester). In order to receive special permission to enroll later than the end of the Add/Drop period, students must present evidence of a sound musical or educational reason for late enrollment.


Enrollment Status.
A student's class is determined by the number of credit hours earned toward graduation. For Conservatory B.Mus. students it is as follows:


Class Credit Hours
Freshman 0-23.99

Sophomore 24-56.99

Junior 57-89.99
Senior 90-124.00
5th-Year 124-152.00 (double-degree students)

124-155.00 (graduate students)

Enrollment Full Time. For students in the B.Mus. and Performance Diploma programs, carrying a course load between 12 and 17 hours constitutes full-time enrollment in the Conservatory. A full-time schedule of 15-16 hours is considered normal; this schedule permits a student to complete the 124 hours required for graduation in eight semesters. For students in the Artist Diploma program, a course load of six hours constitutes full-time enrollment in the Conservatory. For students in the Master of Music program in Historical Performance, a course load of nine to twelve hours constitutes full-time enrollment in the Conservatory.

Students wishing to carry more than seventeen credit hours may do so if they have previously demonstrated the ability to carry heavy loads successfully, and if they have the approval of their principal advisor as well as that of the Assistant Dean in the Conservatory. Students taking more than seventeen credit hours will be charged extra tuition. (See "Tuition" in the "Expenses" section at the beginning of the catalog.)

Enrollment Part Time. For students in the B.Mus. and Performance Diploma programs, carrying a course load under twelve credit hours constitutes part-time enrollment. Ordinarily part-time status is permitted only in cases of second-semester seniors requiring fewer than twelve hours to graduate, or in cases where medical circumstances dictate a smaller than normal load.


Approval of part-time course loads in the Conservatory is given by the Assistant Dean.
Students receiving financial aid who contemplate requesting part-time status should discuss with the Office of Financial Aid how this might affect their eligibility for aid. A student enrolled part time is charged tuition at a per-credit-hour rate; in addition, for applied study or composition study beyond the authorized maximum, extra tuition will be charged. (See "Tuition" in the "Expenses" section at the beginning of the catalog.)
