Please read carefully as the procedure has changed for the Academic Year 2019-2020:

Before the first class, you must sign and submit required safety and liability forms. Formerly, those forms were accessible on the Jacobs School of Music website. Now, the only way to access the two required forms is through your Confirmation of Registration which is automatically emailed to you after enrolling with the online registration form (for all online enrollments before August 16, you will be emailed these forms separately).

Only the parent/guardian may complete these forms and submit them to Indiana University using one of the following methods (fax and mail are no longer accepted methods):

  1. A parent/guardian may submit forms in person to the Program Director or Assigned Teacher at their child’s first pre-college class of the academic year OR
  2. Before the first class, a parent/guardian may email forms to the secure IU BOX HEALTH folder for their program. The link is provided in the Confirmation of Registration mentioned above. Only email these forms to the IU BOX HEALTH folder, and please attach as a single PDF document with a file name of: CHILD’S LAST NAME, CHILD’S FIRST NAME.
