All full-time students in the School of Music are required to attend a combination of ten ensemble, faculty or guest artist recitals, or master classes each semester. In addition, they are required to attend 5 student recitals. All students must meet this requirement for six semesters. Transfer students should meet with the associate dean to determine if they are eligible to substitute transfer credits. Please see the current catalog for the specific requirements.
At the start of each semester, students pick up a recital attendance card from Shannon Hills, Assistant to the Associate Dean, in the main office. Cards are punched immediately before and immediately after each recital that a student attends. Look for the designated "card puncher" outside of the concert or recital hall. Only performances in the Whalen Center scheduled on the official School of Music Calendar are eligible, and all recitals must occur in the same semester by the last day of classes.
Note: individual studios may have additional attendance requirements.
