  • Acceptance to the department for all music students is by audition.
  • Continuation in the music program is determined by jury exams and the results of the sophomore conference (an interview with the full-time faculty and the student's adjunct music instructor, if applicable) to be held normally at the end of the fifth quarter of study, but no later than the first quarter of the junior year.
  • The results of the sophomore conference may be:
