Advising and Applied Juries
All music and music education students should seek the advice of the music faculty on a regular basis to maintain regular and intelligent advancement toward finishing their degrees.
Applied Juries will be given at the end of fall and winter semesters, and are required for all music and music education majors enrolled in applied music courses. Other students may be advised to take Juries if their occupational goal would suggest it. Minimum performance standards in each performance medium will be determined by the music faculty, and each students must satisfy these performance standards in order to graduate. Juries and/or senior recitals will be used for evaluation. Failure to meet applied performance standards will result in additional requirements in the applied area having to be met prior to graduation.
Transfer students must be enrolled in an ensemble every semester of attendance, but may count ensemble credits gained at another institution toward the minimum ensemble credits required for graduation. For placement in required courses, all transfer students will be given proficiency exams in music theory, music history, and applied music. Remedial work may be assigned, if necessary. All transfer students must take at least 2 credits in Applied Music at SVSU.
