College of Arts and Sciences Requirements for the Bachelor of Music

Students must comply with the degree requirements as stated in one edition of the Catalogue in place during the time they are enrolled. However, since the curriculum is viewed as a coherent whole, selected parts from different catalogues may not be counted. Students who do not complete the degree within seven years must comply with the requirements in the catalogue current at the date of readmission. Disputed rulings may be appealed to the Committee on Academic Standing.

  1. A student must earn a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 in a program consisting of a minimum of 122 credits for a bachelor of music degree with a concentration in performance. Of these hours of required credit, two hours must be associated with physical education activities. Students receiving degrees from the College of Arts and Sciences may apply no more than 10 credits of Physical Education toward the 122 required for graduation. Students 25 years of age or older at the time of admission or students with a documented medical condition which precludes participation in such activities are exempt from the physical education requirement and must present a total of 120 hours of academic credit. Courses taken on a pass/no pass basis may not be used toward the completion of any requirement listed below under sections C, D, and E.
