Announcements for All Students

[1] Fall semester schedule adjustment through Sunday, August 26

The last day to adjust your schedule through the registration system on One.IU is Sunday, August 26 (the last day of the first week of classes). There is an $8.50 per session schedule change fee that is charged (after the 48 hour grace period immediately following your initial registration) when you adjust your schedule on One.IU through Sunday, August 26.

Although you can adjust your schedule on Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, we recommend that you try to have your schedule finalized by Friday, August 24 so that if you have any questions you can ask while the Music Graduate Office and the Student Central on Union office are open.  If you adjust your schedule over the weekend, there are no offices open who can help with issues.

Please look at your schedule on One.IU to make sure that your schedule reflects every course that you are attending.  Most master’s and all diploma students need to check to make sure that you are registered in a major ensemble, too.

Sunday, August 26, is also the last day to get a 100% refund on a dropped course.  Remember that even if you drop a class you are still responsible for being enrolled full-time (in most cases): at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students, unless you are a master’s or doctoral student in your final semester of coursework, and at least 10 credits for diploma and visiting students.  

Starting Monday, August 27, you will use the eAdd/eDrop system to add or drop a course.  The fees for dropping and adding classes are different starting on August 27.  I will send information about how to adjust your schedule starting August 27 in next week’s announcements.

The last run of the waitlist for all courses will be on Thursday (August 23).  So if you are not registered in a class by the morning of Friday, August 24, you will need to adjust your schedule manually because the waitlist will no longer work.

[2] MUS-F 550 Chamber Music enrollment policies

Students planning to enroll in MUS-F 550 Chamber Music for the fall semester are encouraged to form their group(s) now if possible. Please review these policies:

* Every student participating in a chamber group must be enrolled in MUS-F 550 Chamber Music  

* Students must enroll one time for each group of which they are a member. If you will register in two groups, contact the Music Graduate Office for the class number for the second group.

* F550 may be taken for 1 or 0 credits. (The registrar charges an $18 recording fee for any 0-credit course.)

* Students who register for 0 credits cannot use the registration towards any graduation requirements.

* All instrumental PDSP and AD students are required to enroll in a minimum of 1 credit of chamber music each semester. Those who choose to participate in an additional group may enroll for either 0 or 1 credit.

* At least half the members of a group must be enrolled for 1 credit. Students who are participating to make up an incomplete from a previous semester are considered to have enrolled for 1 credit if they did so originally. Students are responsible for determining the enrollment intentions of the other members of the group when forming their group.

Please take care that you register correctly. 

See the chamber music web site (http://music.indiana.edu/departments/academic/collaborative-music/chamber-music/index.shtml) for more information about policies and procedures.

Piano and String majors will have a required meeting on Thursday, August 23 from 12 to 1:30 pm in MC040 (in the Musical Arts Center).

Brass majors will have a required meeting on Thursday, August 23 from 5:30-7 pm in MC036.

Wind/percussion majors will have a required meeting on Friday, August 24 from 5:30-7 pm in MC070 (in the Musical Arts Center).

Groups need to be formed by the end of the third week of classes (Friday, September 7).

If you have questions or concerns about chamber music, email chmusic@indiana.edu.

[3] A few notes for new students

If you have any problems with your fall schedule, please contact the Music Graduate Office by coming by the office (JS120), calling 812-855-1738, or emailing either musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu.

Remember that you want to have your fall schedule finalized by Friday, August 24.

If you would ilke to meet with me (Sara) to make a long-term plan for all of your semesters, please call 812-855-1738 to set up a half hour appointment after the first week of classes (any time between the second week and late October, when registration for spring will begin). We can't do that sort of planning now because there simply isn't time, but I'm happy to sit down with students to make long-term plans any time after the first week of classes.

If you are going to retake any of the graduate entrance exams (for master's and doctoral students), be sure to make any Winter Break travel plans to allow yourself plenty of time to be back in Bloomington before January 3. The exact dates and times are posted here: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/GEE.shtml#GEEDates.

Announcements for All Students

[1] New German for Musicians course (starting fall 2018)

New Graduate-level German Courses Available in Fall 2018 for JSoM Students

There are two 2-credit German courses (which must be taken together in one semester - think of them as a single 4 credit course) that can count the same way as GER-G 105 Accelerated German can for all graduate and diploma programs. These two courses (when taken together and both earning a passing grade) can be used to fulfill the German language requirement for singers, conductors, collaborative pianists and PD students.

MUS-V580 Practicum in German for Musicians (2 credits)
Class meeting time: TTh 9:05AM-10:10PM - Rm MUSA007
Class Instructor: Prof. Julia Karin Lawson (juklawson@indiana.edu)

This course, co-requisite and given in tandem with GER V-605 German Grammar and Structure, is intended to give music majors the opportunity to exercise and develop skills acquired in the study of German grammar and structure in activities in the context of vocal performance in German. We will de-emphasize - though not neglect - expressions and vocabulary related to everyday situations and routine tasks and instead will focus on the language of German lyric poetry and performance literature.

This class will enable students to:
• become better readers and interpreters of German lyric poetry, opera libretti, and other texts in a variety of musical settings
• become independent and confident learners of German, especially in the context of musical performance
• build and maintain an active vocabulary of terminology and expressions central to singing and performing in German

Please note that students enrolling in this class must also enroll in:
GER-V605 German Grammar and Structure (2 credits)
Class meeting time: MW 9:05AM-10:10PM - Rm MUSA007
Class Instructor: Prof. Julia Karin Lawson (juklawson@indiana.edu)

This class, co-requisite and given in tandem with MUS V-580 Practicum in German for Musicians, intended to give graduate and diploma students the skills to become independent and confident learners of German in the context of vocal performance by working to demystify German grammar and syntax, strengthen translation skills, build professional vocabulary, and deepen the understanding of German lyric poetry.

This class will enable students to:
• translate texts of intermediate difficulty from German to English and hereby gain a deeper understanding of them
• demonstrate competence in main areas of German grammar such as German verb forms and tenses, noun-pronoun agreement, forms and uses of the nominative, accusative, and dative cases, reflexive verbs and pronouns, adjectives, and more
• build and maintain an active vocabulary central to singing and performing in German

The courses are NOW in the Schedule of Classes (https://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/GER/GER-V605.shtml and https://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/MUS-V580.shtml). We will waive the schedule adjustment fee for students who have already enrolled and who need to change their schedule in order to add MUS-V 580 and GER-V 605 since whey were added to the schedule so late this summer (if this applies to you, please contact the Music Graduate Office at musgrad@indiana.edu). Remember, you must enroll in both courses in the same semester - all four credit hours. It is not possible to take only 2 credits.

Master's and doctoral students who do not have a German grammar requirement for their degree or program can take these courses for the Other Required Credits requirement. Diploma students who have already fulfilled the foreign language requirement with a language other than German can take the classes and 2 of the credits will count towards the diploma music course requirement (but the other 2 credits will be extra). Students who have a German grammar requirement cannot use these courses towards any requirement other than the German grammar requirement (it cannot double count in two places).

[2] Registration for fall 2018 - last chance to register without late fees

Fall registration started on Monday, April 2. We are currently accepting program planning sheets for fall.  The Fall Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/index.shtml.

If you plan to enroll for fall and haven't submitted your program planning sheet yet, you need to do that before Wednesday, August 8 in order to be guaranteed to get a reply in time to register before late fees will be charged. The Music Graduate Office will be focused on New Student Orientation during the week of August 13 and will not be able to respond quickly to program planning sheet submissions. The last day to enroll for the fall semester with no late registration fees is Thursday, August 16. Starting Friday, August 17, there is a late registration fee of $60, which goes up an additional $10 the following week. The deadline to enroll (with a late fee) is Friday, August 24.

Here is a link to registration instructions: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml#Program%20Planning%20Sheets.

There is a separate program planning sheet for each degree category - be sure to use the program planning sheet that matches your program:

The reason that we have separate program planning sheets is that we've asked you to supply some additional information about which requirement category each course you plan to register for falls into. For example, if you are a master's student enrolling in a music history course, you can choose (from a drop-down menu) that the music history course is for the music history requirement. If you are a doctoral student enrolling in a class for your first minor, you will choose the minor category, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the program planning sheet.

You will normally get a response to your program planning sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but during high volume times, such as the beginning of fall registration, it can take several days. If you haven't received a response within 5 days, please let us know.

Before you fill out your program planning sheet, you should look at your Academic Advisement Report to see which requirements you still need to fulfill. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to One.IU. In the Seach, Click, Done! box at the top of the page, type "Student Center (SIS)." Click on the Student Center icon in the search results. From that page, click on My Academics and Grades . That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. The Academic Advisement Report has a breakdown of all of your requirements and tracks which requirements you have already completed. It is an incredibly useful tool to use while you decide what to take in the fall semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment by calling 812-855-1738. You can also email musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu with your questions (but please call if you want to make an appointment, we don't set up appointment times by email).

All currently registered students will see two "Advising" holds on their records in One.IU. These holds prevent students from registering for summer and/or fall until the appropriate program planning sheet is approved. The holds do not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering for summer and/or fall, so don't worry if you see them.

[6] Writing Tutorial Services Dissertation and Article Writing groups

Dear Graduate Students,

Please see below for information about Fall 2018 Dissertation Groups and Article Writing Workshops offered by Writing Tutorial Services (WTS):

Fall 2018 Dissertation Groups

It's that time of year again: the application for Fall 2018 Dissertation Groups is available!

WTS Dissertation Groups are, first and foremost, solidarity writing groups. Participants agree to keep each other accountable, and in return, groups will support each other through discussions and regular attendance. Each meeting is 3 hours long, with the first hour dedicated to discussion and check-in (peer support and discussion of brief readings on best practices for large-scale and long-term academic writing), and the next two hours dedicated to working on the dissertation. Please be aware that our groups serve this dual purpose of resource and peer support and of giving participants a space and a group of fellow writers to write among quietly for ~2 hours.

This year we will be using Helen Sword's Air & Light & Time & Space (2017) as our primary reading material, on top of other various resources.

Graduate students from all departments at IUB who are at the dissertation stage are encouraged to apply! Applications are considered on a competitive basis.

This fall, we are offering 7 groups for participants, all of which will meet for the full 16-week semester (August 27th - December 14th). The meeting times are as follows:

Mondays 9am-12pm
Mondays 1pm-4pm
Tuesdays 9am-12pm
Tuesdays 1pm-4pm
Wednesdays 9am-12pm
Wednesdays 1pm-4pm
Thursdays 1pm-4pm

Please find the application for all participants here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScrz0dysuQgvigBIOz2cjMyZpcHeGA4Av_8sxj1mbyzg7FkmQ/viewform?usp=sf_link.

Fall 2018 Article Writing Workshop

Dear Graduate Students:

On behalf of Writing Tutorial Services and the Campus Writing Program, I invite you to apply to our Fall 2018 Article Writing Workshop.

WTS's Article Writing Workshop will guide you through a rigorous revision process during which you will transform a completed seminar paper or dissertation chapter into an article manuscript with the end goal of submitting to a peer-reviewed journal. Using Wendy Laura Belcher's Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing (2009), you will complete daily and weekly tasks that will help you focus your revisions and that will offer important insights into the standards of academic writing and publishing.

To ensure your successful progress through the workshop's program, we will meet as a group once weekly (Mondays from 9am-12pm or Thursdays from 1-4pm) for the full duration of the Fall 2018 semester. These meetings will begin with an hour of discussion and peer feedback, followed by approximately two hours of individual writing time.

Graduate students from all departments at IUB who have a seminar-length paper or a completed dissertation chapter that they would like to build into a journal-length article are welcome to apply.

This fall, we will offer 2 groups for new participants, both of which will meet for the full 16-week semester (August 27th - December 6th). The meeting times are as follows:

• Mondays from 9 AM - 12 PM (location TBA)
• Thursdays from 1 PM - 4 PM (location TBA)

Please find the application for new participants here: https://goo.gl/forms/KYROHPsaBkfgV6Iv1.

We will also hold a workshop for alumni participants (who have fully participated in at least one WTS Article Writing Workshop) on Wednesdays from 9 AM - 12 PM.

Link to alumni application: https://goo.gl/forms/aPMz9nUmoOjF3AEY2

The deadline for all Article Writing Workshop applications is August 12th, 2018 at 6:00 PM.

If you have any questions about the WTS Article Writing Workshop, please contact Cody St. Clair at ccstclai@indiana.edu.

[3] Registration for fall 2018

Fall registration started on Monday, April 2. We are currently accepting program planning sheets for fall.  The Fall Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/index.shtml.

Here is a link to registration instructions: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml#Program%20Planning%20Sheets.

There is a separate program planning sheet for each degree category - be sure to use the program planning sheet that matches your program:

The reason that we have separate program planning sheets is that we've asked you to supply some additional information about which requirement category each course you plan to register for falls into. For example, if you are a master's student enrolling in a music history course, you can choose (from a drop-down menu) that the music history course is for the music history requirement. If you are a doctoral student enrolling in a class for your first minor, you will choose the minor category, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the program planning sheet.

You will normally get a response to your program planning sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but during high volume times, such as the beginning of fall registration, it can take several days. If you haven't received a response within 5 days, please let us know.

Before you fill out your program planning sheet, you should look at your Academic Advisement Report to see which requirements you still need to fulfill. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to One.IU. In the Seach, Click, Done! box at the top of the page, type "Student Center (SIS)." Click on the Student Center icon in the search results. From that page, click on My Academics and Grades . That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. The Academic Advisement Report has a breakdown of all of your requirements and tracks which requirements you have already completed. It is an incredibly useful tool to use while you decide what to take in the fall semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment by calling 812-855-1738. You can also email musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu with your questions (but please call if you want to make an appointment, we don't set up appointment times by email).

All currently registered students will see two "Advising" holds on their records in One.IU. These holds prevent students from registering for summer and/or fall until the appropriate program planning sheet is approved. The holds do not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering for summer and/or fall, so don't worry if you see them.

[4] Program Completion Application (application for graduation) for summer and fall 2018

If you are planning to finish your program in Summer or Fall 2018, you will need to submit the Program Completion Application form. You can submit the form online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (JS120). 

The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete. 

The deadline to submit the Program Completion Application for Fall is September 21, 2018 for everyone except MA and PhD students.  The deadline for MA and PhD students to apply is September 25, 2018. There is a link on the online Program Completion Application form to the applications for MA and PhD students, which are different.

The deadline for summer has already passed but if you plan to finish your program this summer but have not yet submit the Program Completion Form, you can still submit the form up until July 13.

You are required to submit the Program Completion Application even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony.  The only exception to this policy is PhD students, who only need to apply if they will attend the ceremony. 

There are no negative repercussions to applying if you end up finishing in a later semester (you’ll just need to submit a new Program Completion Application if your plans change).  But if you don’t submit the Program Completion Application, you will not graduate.

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on One.IU.  The way you get to your academic advisement report is to log on the One.IU (www.one.iu.edu ), then search for “student center.”  Click on the Student Center result. From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Program Completion Application".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

[5] Official transcripts and diplomas

If you want to order an official transcript showing your summer 2018 grades, wait until after August 1 to request the transcript. If you want to order a transcript that shows your graduation date (if you are graduating from a program this summer), then wait until you receive an email from the Music Graduate Office confirming your graduation (which you should get before August 10). Here are details on how to order an official transcript: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu//transcripts/order-transcript/index.html.

[3] Registration for fall 2018

Fall registration started on Monday, April 2. We are currently accepting program planning sheets for fall.  The Fall Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/index.shtml.

Here is a link to registration instructions: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml#Program%20Planning%20Sheets.

There is a separate program planning sheet for each degree category - be sure to use the program planning sheet that matches your program:

The reason that we have separate program planning sheets is that we've asked you to supply some additional information about which requirement category each course you plan to register for falls into. For example, if you are a master's student enrolling in a music history course, you can choose (from a drop-down menu) that the music history course is for the music history requirement. If you are a doctoral student enrolling in a class for your first minor, you will choose the minor category, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the program planning sheet.

You will normally get a response to your program planning sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but during high volume times, such as the beginning of fall registration, it can take several days. If you haven't received a response within 5 days, please let us know.

Before you fill out your program planning sheet, you should look at your Academic Advisement Report to see which requirements you still need to fulfill. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to One.IU. In the Seach, Click, Done! box at the top of the page, type "Student Center (SIS)." Click on the Student Center icon in the search results. From that page, click on My Academics and Grades . That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. The Academic Advisement Report has a breakdown of all of your requirements and tracks which requirements you have already completed. It is an incredibly useful tool to use while you decide what to take in the summer session or fall semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment by calling 812-855-1738. You can also email musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu with your questions (but please call if you want to make an appointment, we don't set up appointment times by email).

All currently registered students will see two "Advising" holds on their records in One.IU. These holds prevent students from registering for summer and/or fall until the appropriate program planning sheet is approved. The holds do not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering for summer and/or fall, so don't worry if you see them.

[4] Schedule Adjustment for Summer 2018 and Auto-W Deadline for summer courses that started on June 4

Any schedule changes for summer 2018 need to take place through the eAdd/eDrop system. Details on how to use that system are here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/register/dropping-adding/late-drop-add.html

The deadline for a 50% refund of tuition for classes that started on June 4 and go through July 13 and for second eight week classes (which go from June 4 to July 27) is Sunday, June 17. After that, there will be no refund for dropped classes for those sessions.

The Auto-W Deadline for classes that last from June 4 to July 13 is Monday, June 25.

The Auto-W Deadline for classes that last from June 4 to July 27 is Tuesday, July 3.

The Auto-W deadline is the dividing line between when you may drop a course and be guaranteed a grade of "W" (any time before the Auto-W Deadline) and when you may potentially get a grade of "F" for a dropped course, if you are approved to drop a course at all (after the Auto-W Deadline).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on One.IU (https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/doc/register/e-drop.pdf).   

After the Auto-W deadline, you need the approval of the instructor of the course, the chair of the department that offers the course, and the Music Graduate office in order to drop a class. 

The main differences in dropping a course after the Auto-W deadline are that the instructor has the option of giving you a grade of "F" for the course if that is the grade you are earning when you request to drop it, and that you need to petition to the Music Graduate Office for permission to drop a course after the Auto-W deadline.  Please note that it is extremely rare to get permission to drop a class after the Auto-W deadline.

Please make an appointment to speak with me if you have any questions or concerns.  To make an appointment, call 855-1738.

For fall schedule adjustment, you still use the normal registration system and are still charged an $8.50 schedule adjustment fee for any changes made more than two days after your intial registration until the end of the first week of fall classes.

[5] Electronic Submission of Doctoral Final Project, Piano Essay, MME, and MM Composition Thesis final copies

This message is for doctoral, MME, and MM Composition students who plan to graduate in Summer or Fall 2018.

Doctoral students in most areas are being encouraged to submit the final copy of their dissertation, doctoral final protect, or doctoral piano essay electronically, rather than submit multiple bound printed copies. Students will still have the option of submitting bound copies if they prefer, but we expect the savings in cost (potentially several hundred dollars) and time (potentially several weeks) will motivate most students to use electronic submission. MME and MM Composition students are also encouraged to submit their thesis final copy electronically.

Electronically submitted documents will be catalogued in IUCAT and available either through ProQuest (PhD and DME dissertations) or IU Scholarworks (DM Final Projects, DM Composition Dissertations, DM Piano Essays, MME and MM Composition theses).  Doctoral documents distributed to the research committee for formal review before the public presentation (e.g., defense) will still be in print form. 

The Music Graduate Office will be examining documents closely for compliance with JSOM style guidelines. Use the Style Guidelines page (link below) to ensure you are following all style guidelines. There is a checklist that students may use to ensure compliance before submitting the document for formal research committee review on that page. The final version of a document that is submitted through the Music Graduate Office (i.e., all but PhD dissertations, which are submitted through the University Graduate School) will be checked for compliance with these guidelines and returned for correction if problems are found. Depending on the timing, this could delay a student's graduation by a term.

[2] Registration for Summer 2018 - Procedure change

Even though the majority of music classes won't start until June 4, we are now in a registration period for summer in which any schedule changes need to take place through the eAdd/eDrop system. Details on how to use that system are here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/register/dropping-adding/late-drop-add.html

If you are making changes to a class that hasn't started yet, you will not be charged any schedule adjustment fees (this is unusual and only applies to summer classes). You may see a late registration fee ($60) or a late drop fee ($23) if you enroll for your first class now or drop a class, but those fees will be refunded to your account within one week.

If you have not yet submitted a program planning sheet for summer and want to enroll in a summer course, then you need to complete that step before you register.

The waitlist for summer classes no longer exists. So if you are on a waitlist for a summer class, you will never get into that class from that waitlist.

Late registration fees will be charged for students enrolling in their first class starting on June 4. And late drop fees will also be charged (and stay charged) for any dropped classes after June 4.

Let us know if you have questions about which refund period a class is in.

For fall schedule adjustment, you still use the normal registration system and are still charged an $8.50 schedule adjustment fee for any changes made more than two days after your intial registration up until the end of the first week of the fall semester.

[3] MUS-X 2 Piano Accompanying in Summer 2018

If you are a piano major enrolled for summer (or are interested in enrolling for summer) and would like to enroll in MUS-X 2, please contact Prof. Anne Epperson right away at: epp303@indiana.edu. Non-piano majors who are experienced piano players are also welcome to contact Prof. Epperson and, if there are openings, can audition to potentially be authorized to enroll.

A limited number of students enrolling in MUS-X 2 will get a 1 credit scholarship (which they can use to pay for another course during the summer session). There are only a limited number of scholarships, so tell Prof. Epperson if you are interested in the summer ensemble scholarship as soon as possible.

MUS-X 2 will last from June 4 to July 13.

[4] Job openings for student tutors in Writing Tutorial Services

Dear Graduate Students,

Writing Tutorial Services (WTS), the IUB writing center, is seeking graduate student tutors for fall 2018. WTS graduate tutors work a minimum of 10 hours per week and are paid $13.50 per hour.

As WTS Director, I hope to hire graduate students from across the disciplines who are strong writers and who will be friendly and approachable when working with other writers. Because students who visit WTS are a widely diverse group-in terms of ethnicity, nationality, language, religion, race, and gender-I encourage applications from graduate students who reflect this diversity.

To apply, please email the following documents to javogt@indiana.edu:
• A cover letter describing your teaching/tutoring experience and listing the disciplines for which you would be comfortable tutoring writing
• A resume or CV
• A brief (3-4 page) writing sample

If you have questions or need more information, please email javogt@indiana.edu or call WTS at 812-855-6738. Thank you, jav

[5] Summer grades and grade point average

Please note that the policy for semester grade point average (that you must earn a grade point average of 3.0 or higher) applies for the summer session just as it does for fall or spring. That means that if you are taking only one class, you need to earn a grade of "B" or higher in order to get that minimum grade point average, even if your degree requirement allows a lower passing grade. Not meeting this minimum grade point average can have serious consequences, so pay attention to this policy. Every course you take in the summer counts towards your summer grade point average (even if the classes meet in different summer session periods).

Details on Academic Standing policies are here: http://bulletins.iu.edu/iub/music/2017-2018/regulations/standing-graduate/index.shtml.

[3] Registration for summer and fall 2018

Summer registration started Wednesday, March 21.  We are currently  accepting program planning sheets for summer.

The Summer Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4185/MUS/index.shtml

Here is a link to registration instructions: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml#Program%20Planning%20Sheets.

Fall registration started on Monday, April 2. We are currently accepting program planning sheet for fall.  The Fall Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/index.shtml.

There is a separate program planning sheet for each degree category - be sure to use the program planning sheet that matches your program:

The reason that we have separate program planning sheets is that we've asked you to supply some additional information about which requirement category each course you plan to register for falls into. For example, if you are a master's student enrolling in a music history course, you can choose (from a drop-down menu) that the music history course is for the music history requirement. If you are a doctoral student enrolling in a class for your first minor, you will choose the minor category, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the program planning sheet.

You will normally get a response to your program planning sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but during high volume times, such as the beginning of fall registration, it can take several days. If you haven't received a response within 5 days, please let us know.

Before you fill out your program planning sheet, you should look at your Academic Advisement Report to see which requirements you still need to fulfill. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to One.IU. In the Seach, Click, Done! box at the top of the page, type "Student Center (SIS)." Click on the Student Center icon in the search results. From that page, click on My Academics and Grades . That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. The Academic Advisement Report has a breakdown of all of your requirements and tracks which requirements you have already completed. It is an incredibly useful tool to use while you decide what to take in the summer session or fall semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment by calling 812-855-1738. You can also email musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu with your questions (but please call if you want to make an appointment, we don't set up appointment times by email).

All currently registered students will see two "Advising" holds on their records in One.IU. These holds prevent students from registering for summer and/or fall until the appropriate program planning sheet is approved. The holds do not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering for summer and/or fall, so don't worry if you see them.

[4] Registration for Summer 2018 - Procedure change

Even though the majority of music classes won't start until June 4, we are now in a registration period for summer in which any schedule changes need to take place through the eAdd/eDrop system. Details on how to use that system are here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/register/dropping-adding/late-drop-add.html

If you are making changes to a class that hasn't started yet, you will not be charged any schedule adjustment fees (this is unusual and only applies to summer classes). You may see a late registration fee ($60) or a late drop fee ($23) if you enroll for your first class now or drop a class, but those fees will be refunded to your account within one week.

If you have not yet submitted a program planning sheet for summer and want to enroll in a summer course, then you need to complete that step before you register.

The waitlist for summer classes no longer exists. So if you are on a waitlist for a summer class, you will never get into that class from that waitlist.

Late registration fees will be charged for students enrolling in their first class starting on June 4. And late drop fees will also be charged (and stay charged) for any dropped classes after June 4.

Let us know if you have questions about which refund period a class is in.

For fall schedule adjustment, you still use the normal registration system and are still charged an $8.50 schedule adjustment fee for any changes made more than two days after your intial registration up until the end of the first week of the fall semester.
