Our goal is to support the endeavors of prospective and continuing students by providing comprehensive and seamless admissions and academic advising, support services, and co-curricular opportunities, creating an inclusive space that honors students’ unique experiences, and liaising with faculty and staff in ways that foster student success.

At Student Affairs, you will find a team of talented student development specialists committed to your success and equipped with a myriad of knowledge and resources to support your academic journey. At our core, we view advising as teaching rather than just course scheduling and paperwork. Therefore, through a collaborative partnership with each School of Music student, we aim to provide you with the necessary tools to make educated decisions impacting your academic, professional, and personal development.

Should you need support at any point, please visit us. We look forward to working with you!

Supporting Our Students During the Global Pandemic

Dear School of Music Students,

During this challenging time, it is important for you to know that we are here for you. One benefit of our university’s transition to remote instruction is that we are only a Zoom call away! We encourage each of you to remain connected with your advisor in the following ways:

  • Contact your advisor by email to schedule advising appointments. Although we are remote, we are still available during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Please do not hesitate to connect with us if you would like to check on your academic progress or should you need help navigating campus resources. Please find our contact information here.
  • Throughout the academic year, we will be hosting regular online events to share updates, to offer guidance and to ensure that you remain connected with your major, department, and our school. Please keep an eye on your email for updates on these exciting events!

We wish you, your family, and your friends continued health, and hope that you will check in with us on anything you may need. We are here to help.

The Student Affairs team is available to discuss your academic needs via appointments or limited drop-in advising sessions. Students who walk-in without an appointment or during times that are not designated as drop-in advising sessions will be asked to follow one or both of the following options:

  • Drop-in Advising Sessions
    Every week of the academic year, our academic advisors host specific drop-in advising hours students may utilize for brief academic advising questions. Our front desk assistants will post sign-in sheets 15 minutes prior to the start of a drop-in advising session. You simply need to come in and sign up for a 15-minute time slot. Feel free to leave and come back when it’s your turn!
  • Appointments
    For longer, more complicated concerns, students are encouraged to set up an appointment with their academic advisor. To do so, simply make an appointment with a Student Affairs officer or email your academic advisor with your availability and we’ll figure out a mutually agreeable time.
