UAF Music Student Handbook
Fifth Edition, 2008
The Music Handbook no longer exists as a hard-copy printed publication. It now exists in virtual form on this website. (Students may print their own copies of these pages, if they wish.)
The purpose of this Handbook is to provide general clarification of policies and procedures that have been used by the Department in the past but have never been comprehensively stated for the benefit of new and returning students. The Handbook is designed principally for the guidance of undergraduate students majoring in Music. It may not unique address issues relating to graduate students or non-music majors. Students interested in the Master of Arts degree program should visit this link.
Although most of the policies contained here are familiar to current students, some policies have been clarified with respect to participation in large ensembles, preparation for junior and senior recitals, and attendance requirements for Departmental recitals and convocations.
Modifications of policies contained in this Handbook may be made at any time. Announcements of such changes will be posted on departmental bulletin boards, announced at Town Meeting convocations or brought to student's attention by their academic advisor or private lesson teacher.
Suggestions for improving the usefulness of this Handbook are actively sought. The Department appreciates being informed of any typographical errors, and also appreciates comments on how this document can be improved. Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
