Change of Concentration or Major Instrument

Change of Concentration or Major Instrument

Currently enrolled students who are considering changing their concentration or major instrument within the same degree program should consult with their department chair and academic advisor prior to requesting a change. Students in the baccalaureate dance program are eligible to request a change in concentration before the end of their third year. Students in the baccalaureate music program are eligible to request a change in major instrument if they are equally competent on a second instrument.

Students who wish to change their concentration or major instrument within the same degree must submit a completed Change of Concentration or Major Instrument Form to the Office of Admissions and Records to request the change. A change of concentration or major instrument requires approval by the department chair and the major advisor for the changed concentration or instrument. An audition is required for a change in major instrument.

Students will be notified of the decision by the Office of Admissions and Records. Students whose requests have been approved will thereupon be subject to the graduation requirements of the new concentration or major instrument.
