Can I pick a teacher I would like to study with if I am accepted?

Yes. In areas where there are multiple faculty members, incoming students can make a request for the teacher with whom they would like to study. The Dean of the School of Music makes all of the teacher assignments and in most cases is able to honor requests, but this is not guaranteed. Students who would like to make a formal request must complete the survey that is sent via email between May 1 and June 1 of the year that they are enrolling.
