Many students receive music scholarship funds and may be required to perform in more than one ensemble during any semester they receive the scholarship funds.  Scholarship requirements may be in addition to curricular requirements.  Students consult the advisor and the Director of their primary area, Band, Choir, or Orchestra for which semesters to participate in the various ensembles.  Students must consult the university catalog for chamber ensemble requirements, which differ for vocalists and instrumentalists, as well as consult with their ensemble director and adviser as to which semesters to participate in chamber ensembles.

WE indicates a Writing Enhanced course. Four courses with the WE designation are required for graduation. FSEM and JSEM are automatically WE designated. Students may select General Education courses with or without the WE designation as long as four are taken at some point before graduation. More than four WE courses are suggested in this document, but more than four is not required.
