Conditional Classification

Some new students are admitted to conditionally classified status. Students may remain conditionally classified until they have accumulated 10 units of credit. During this time, which should not extend beyond the first semester, they must remove all conditions for classification. These conditions most frequently include:

• Completion of the department's diagnostic entrance examinations in music history and music theory. See the Graduate Program Coordinator for details.

• Completing any remedial work indicated by diagnostic exam results.

Students must be classified by the time they accumulate 10 units. Otherwise, and in accordance with University policy, they may be denied permission to count towards the degree any units in excess of the allowable 10.
