[1] All graduate students: Registration for Summer Session II and Fall Semester 2010 (reminder)

Registration for the 2010 summer sessions started on Wednesday, March 24 and registration for the fall semester 2010 started on Monday, April 5. Please remember that you will need to submit a Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before you will be eligible to register for summer or fall. You can do this by submitting an online Program Planning Sheet at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/ProgramPlanningSheet.shtml. We are accepting Program Planning Sheets for summer and fall registration now. Usually you will get a reply to your Program Planning Sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but there are times that it takes longer. Just be reassured that we do process them in the order in which we receive them.

Summer session II 2010 will take place from Friday, June 18 through August 13. There are no graduate level music courses offered in summer session I. http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4105/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the summer Schedule of Classes.

Fall semester 2010 will take place from Monday, August 30 through December 17. http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4108/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the fall Schedule of Classes.

For information about how to prepare for registration, please read the following web page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Registration.shtml.

To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Next, click on the Go to Student Center link. 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.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment to see me by calling 855-1738. You can also email either serbes@indiana.edu or musgrad@indiana.edu with your questions.

Please note that every student who is registered this spring semester has two advising holds on their record (you can see this in the Student Center – there is one for summer advising and one for fall advising). These holds will be removed as you submit your program planning sheets and don’t affect your records in any way other than blocking your registration. If you have submitted a program planning sheet for summer but not for fall, you will still see the fall hold, but it won’t block you from registering in the summer.

[2] All graduate students: Applications for graduation

Remember that if you plan to graduate this May or August you need to submit an Application for Graduation. If you do not remember whether you have already done this, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu). The way you get to your academic advisement report is to log on to OneStart, then click on the “student center” link. 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.

Once you get to the academic advisement report, click on the “expand all” button at the top of the report. Near the end of the academic advisement report there is a line for "Application for Graduation". If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation. If the line says "Satisfied," then we have. If you haven’t submitted an application yet, you can do so online by following the links on this page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Graduation.shtml.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony. If you apply for graduation this late in the semester your name will not be in the Commencement program, but you will still have the option of attending the ceremony if you’d like.

[4] All doctoral students still in coursework: “New” music theory minor

Doctoral Students

A change in the requirements for the minor in music theory has recently been approved. The minor must include either T551 Analytical Techniques for Tonal Music or T556 Analysis of Music Since 1900, plus any three courses numbered T545 or higher. The requirement that the minor must include one of T550 Readings in Music Theory and T591 Teaching of Music Theory has been eliminated. If you have already declared a music theory minor and would like to change your list of proposed courses in light of this loosened requirement, you will need to submit a new Minor Field form (http://www.music.indiana.edu/som/grad/Forms/PdfForm--DoctoralMinorField.pdf).

[3] All doctoral students: Declaration of doctoral minors (reminder)

We have noticed a trend that many doctoral students are waiting until they are almost done with coursework to formally declare their minors. This is a very risky thing – until you formally declare a minor, you have no way of knowing whether or not the courses you are taking will count. Sometimes students take courses that don’t count, spending time and money on what ends up being an extra class. This is something those students could have avoided by declaring their minors early.

In the future, doctoral students will not be eligible to register for their 5th semester of coursework until all minors (or guided electives) are formally declared and approved. Please see http://www.music.indiana.edu/som/grad/Doctoral/Minors.shtml for detailed information about minor field requirements and instructions on how to get your minor approved.

If you are a doctoral student who is starting to take (or have already taken) courses that you hope to count towards your minor(s) but have not yet formally declared that minor, you should do so immediately. I will not enforce a delay on the approval of your Program Planning Sheet until your minors are approved this semester, but will starting with registration for spring 2011.
________________________________________________________________________

[4] All international students: Time limits on international student documentation

International students,

You are responsible for being aware of the time limits on your international student documentation (I-20, DS2019, etc), and you are expected to complete your program requirements within those time limits. These time limits are sometimes different from Jacobs School of Music program time limits.

If you think you will need more time than you are given on your international student documentation, then you should contact me so that we can discuss your academic plans and how they relate to your time limits. After we have talked, you will probably need to speak with the International Services Office in Franklin Hall room 306. Do not put this off – if there is a chance you cannot graduate before your deadline, you need to start discussing your options right away.

Please note that extensions are only given if there is a compelling academic or medical reason that you cannot graduate before the deadline. Reasons relating to auditions, jobs, and “wanting more time” will not be accepted by the International Services Office.

This reminder is being sent to you as many students’ I-20s/DS-2019s expire in May 2010. There seems to have been a mistaken assumption among some international students that getting an extension is never a problem. However, not taking required courses and therefore not completing degree requirements before I-20/DS-2019 expiration deadlines can result in difficult situations.

I hope that by reminding you of your responsibility to complete your requirements within your time limits that we can avoid confusion in the future. I am not trying to say that you can never get an extension (if there is a compelling academic or medical reason for needing more time, then it is generally possible), but it’s dangerous to assume that it will happen. So please remember to keep your international student time limits in mind as you make your plans each semester, and let me know if you think it’s going to take you longer to finish your program than the time limit you have on your current documentation.

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 Wednesday, March 10) 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 March 10).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on OneStart (http://registrar.indiana.edu/~registra/dropadd.shtml#edrop).

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. You do not have the option of using eDrop after the Auto-W deadline, you will need a late add/drop form from the Music Graduate Office.

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 remember that even when you drop a class you are still responsible for maintaining a full-time course load - at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students (except for some students in their last semester of coursework), at least 9 credits for all diploma and visiting students.

If you want to add a course after the Auto-W deadline, you will need to pick up a late drop/add form in the Music Graduate Office and gather various signatures. The eAdd system (like the eDrop system) is not available after March 10.

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

[2] All graduate students: Registration for Summer Session II 2010

The summer session 2010 Schedule of Classes is now posted on the Registrar’s office web site. http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4105/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the schedule.

We are not yet accepting program planning sheets for summer registration, but will begin to around March 4. I will send an email announcement when it’s time to start submitting program planning sheets.

However, you can look at the summer schedule and start making decisions now about which courses you would like to take in summer session II (if you plan to stay for the summer).

Summer session II 2010 will take place from Friday June 18 through Friday August 13. There are no graduate level music courses offered in summer session I.

________________________________________________________________________

[3] All doctoral students: Written Qualifying Exams in Summer Session II 2010

Doctoral Students,

If you are planning to take a written qualifying exam during summer session II 2010, you need to sign up in the Music Graduate Office by Friday, March 12, 2010. You can do this through email (musdoc@indiana.edu) or by stopping by the Music Graduate Office (MU011). The information we will need is your full name and which exam (or exams) you plan to take during summer session II.

At the moment we are not asking you to reserve a specific date for this summer; we just need to know if you are planning to take a written exam in the summer so that we have time to request the exam questions from your Advisory Committee representatives before the majority of the faculty leaves for the summer. However, if you would like to reserve a specific date (and you are eligible to schedule a date right away), you will be able to do so as soon as the summer written exam calendar is posted.

If you want to take an exam in the summer but are not yet fully qualified to schedule a date (for example, you want to take your major field exam in the summer but your topic proposal is not yet approved), then you can tell us before March 12 that you want to take a summer exam, then reserve a specific date once you are eligible to schedule.

Don't forget that you need to submit the "Request to take Doctoral Written Qualifying Exams” form before you can request to take any qualifying examination. You can submit the form in the Music Graduate Office or online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Doctoral/RequesttoBeginExams.shtml.

See http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Doctoral/Quals.shtml for information about the qualifying exam process.

Please contact the Music Graduate Office if you have any questions about scheduling summer written exams (Merrill Hall 011, musdoc@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

[3] All graduate students: Application for Graduation (reminder)

Remember that if you plan to graduate this May or August, you need to submit an Application for Graduation. If you do not remember whether you have already done this, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu). The way you get to your academic advisement report is to log on the OneStart, then click on the “student center” link. 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.

Near the end of the academic advisement report there is a line for "Application for Graduation". If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation. If the line says "Satisfied," then we have. If you haven’t submitted an application yet, you can do so online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/ApplicationforGraduation.shtml (MA students should use this form: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Forms/Form--MAGraduationApplication.pdf and PhD students should use this form: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Forms.shtml).

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony. However, if you are interested in attending the commencement ceremony please note that the deadline to receive information from the Ceremonies office and have your name appear in the commencement program is February 12, 2010. If you apply after this date, your name may not be in the Commencement program.

We strongly suggest you submit your application as soon as possible even if you don’t care about the commencement ceremony because that will give you more time to fix any problems that may come to your attention through the application process.
________________________________________________________________________

[4] All graduate students: Dropping and Adding Classes in your Spring 2010 schedule (reminder)

To drop a class from Tuesday, January 19 through Wednesday, March 10, you can follow the procedure outlined here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/pdfs/eDrop.pdf. This procedure is called eDrop. Remember that dropping a class at this point in the semester means that you do not get a full refund of your tuition for the credits you drop. This is true even if you drop one class and add another in its place.

REMINDER – THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, IS THE LAST DAY TO RECEIVE ANY REFUND FOR DROPPED COURSES. IF YOU DROP A COURSE THIS WEEK YOU WILL GET 25% OF THE TUITION REFUNDED. IF YOU DROP A CLASS AFTER FEBRUARY 5, YOU WILL GET NO REFUND OF THE TUITION.

To add a class from Tuesday, January 19 through the end of the semester, you will be able to use the eAdd procedure (which is similar to the eDrop procedure; details are outlined here http://registrar.indiana.edu/pdfs/eAdd.pdf).

Please let us know if you have problems with the eDrop or eAdd systems.

A few reminders – you are required to maintain full-time enrollment. Full-time enrollment for most master’s and doctoral students is at least 8 credit hours (except for those doctoral students who are in the exam stage of their degree, some master’s students in their final semester, and some students with special permission to enroll in less than 8 credits) and full-time enrollment for diploma and visiting students is at least 9 credit hours (there are no exceptions for diploma student full-time enrollment).
Please come by the Music Graduate Office is you have any questions or concerns.

To set up an appointment to speak with me, call 855-1738.

[5] Doctoral students - Doctoral Students nearing the end of coursework

I am writing particularly to doctoral students who are in their final semesters of course work and looking towards qualifying exams. As you plan your last courses and think about your schedule for written and oral qualifying exams, I want to encourage you to be thinking about the proposal you will write for a doctoral final project or dissertation. In almost every field at the Jacobs School of Music you need to have an approved topic for your final project or dissertation to make progress on your qualifying exams. In those fields you must have completed the proposal and have it approved before you can take a major-field exam or an oral exam (depending on your department).

You will certainly be eager to get your exams done and officially become a candidate for your degree. The thing that most often delays students is the lack of a complete topic proposal, which sometimes entangles them in time limits. (Students must pass the oral qualifying exam within one year of taking the first written exam.) I am writing to urge you to read about what is required, to consult with potential research committee members, and to plan your work on this proposal as you take your last courses. Details are at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Doctoral/docindex.shtml, organized by program. Planning ahead and getting a start on your proposal represents the best way to help yourself make uninterrupted progress.

Please get in touch with the Music Graduate Office if you have questions.

[4] All doctoral candidates: Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship (with Howard University)
FUTURE FACULTY TEACHING FELLOWSHIP
Exchange Program with Howard University in Washington, D.C.: Information for IU Bloomington Graduate Students

The Graduate Schools of Indiana University, Bloomington and Howard University have established a Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship (FFTF) mutual exchange program between our campuses. The goals of the program are twofold:

(1) To provide an opportunity for an IUB graduate student to teach in a very different cultural environment. Howard University is a private, urban, historically black
university (HBCU) located in Washington, D.C. The selected student will function as a visiting faculty member in their host department.
(2) To provide an opportunity for a Howard University graduate student to teach in the very different cultural environment provided by IUB, where they also will function as a visiting faculty member. We hope that a further benefit for IUB will be an enhanced ability to attract visiting fellows into IUB tenure track lines, and to retain them through their academic careers.

Applicants must:
o Be in good standing with their departments and the University.
o Have been admitted to candidacy by January 1, 2010.
o Submit a formal letter of support from their Ph.D. advisor.
o Formerly completed a formal pedagogy course, or be willing to complete such a course in summer 2010.
o Be able to relocate to Washington, DC for the 2010-11 academic year.

The selected fellow is required to:
o Meet the professional standards, and perform the duties, of a faculty member at Howard University.
o Teach one course per semester.
o Participate in typical faculty obligations including, but not restricted to, faculty meetings.
o Shadow a full-time faculty mentor at Howard University.
o Enroll in one credit hour of G901 or its equivalent in the fall and spring semesters.

19 January 2010: To all graduate students

Dropping and adding classes procedure starting Tuesday, January 19

Good morning,

Starting today (Tuesday, January 19), adding and dropping classes will follow a different procedure than logging in to the registration system through OneStart.

To drop a class on Tuesday, January 19 through Wednesday, March 10, you can follow the procedure outlined here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/pdfs/eDrop.pdf. This procedure is called eDrop. Remember that dropping a class at this point in the semester means that you do not get a full refund of your tuition for the credits you drop. This is true even if you drop one class and add another in its place.

To add a class on Tuesday, January 19 through the end of the semester, you will be able to use the eAdd procedure (which is similar to the eDrop procedure; details are outlined here http://registrar.indiana.edu/pdfs/eAdd.pdf).
Please let us know if you have problems with the eDrop or eAdd systems.

A few reminders – you are required to maintain full-time enrollment. Full-time enrollment for most master’s and doctoral students is at least 8 credit hours (except for those doctoral students who are in the exam stage of their degree, some master’s students in their final semester, and some students with special permission to enroll in less than 8 credits) and full-time enrollment for diploma and visiting students is at least 9 credit hours (there are no exceptions for diploma student full-time enrollment).

The waitlist no longer exists. If you were on the waitlist for a class that was not fulfilled by the end of the day on Friday, January 15 that means that you are NOT enrolled in that class and you will need to add it to your schedule using the eAdd procedure if the professor of the class approves.

Please come by the Music Graduate Office is you have any questions or concerns. To set up an appointment to speak with me, call 855-1738.

[1] All graduate students: Registration and Schedule Adjustment

Graduate Students:

The last day to adjust your schedule through the registration system on OneStart is Friday, January 15 (the last day of the first week of classes). There is an $8.50 per session schedule change fee that is charged when you adjust your schedule in OneStart through Friday, January 15.

The last day to register for the spring 2010 semester is Friday, January 15. Remember that you need to submit your program planning sheet online at this web page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/ProgramPlanningSheet.shtml before you can register. You do not need to submit a new program planning sheet if you are already registered and just need to adjust your spring schedule on OneStart.

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

Friday, January 15, 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 (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 9 credits for diploma and visiting students). If you drop a class after Friday, January 15, you will not get a full refund of your tuition for that class.

Starting Tuesday, January 19, in order to add or drop a class you will be able to use the eAdd/eDrop system, I’ll send out more details at that time. The fees for dropping and adding classes are different after January 19.

If you are planning to graduate this May or August, you will need to fill out an application for graduation. You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/ApplicationforGraduation.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011). The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete.

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your Academic Advisement Report on OneStart. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Next, click on the Go to Student Center link. 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.

Please contact the Music Graduate Office if you have any questions. Our phone number is 855-1738. Our email address is musgrad@indiana.edu. The best way to set up an appointment to see me is by calling or by stopping by our office in MU011.

Late March, to be announced
Instructors teaching foreign languages gather each semester to share teaching ideas in an informal and supportive environment and to re-energize for the second half of the semester. Look for announcements at http://www.iub.edu/~celtie/fslfair.html.

Our Services
Departmental Workshops: Our consultants collaborate with many departments to design meetings, retreats, and working group sessions geared toward the needs of the individual department. These can be for faculty and adjunct instructors alike and include working with departmental committees on curriculum planning, teaching evaluation and peer assessments, and facilitating faculty discussions on teaching and student learning.
Teaching Consultations and Conundrums: Have a teaching conundrum, a nagging classroom issue or maybe just a question about the ways your students learn? We provide free and completely confidential individual consultations to support all aspects of teaching and student learning.
Making Your Teaching Visible: Course portfolios, teaching portfolios, online teaching snapshots, and scholarship of teaching and learning presentations and publications capture the intellectual work of teaching so that it can be shared with others. We offer workshops, working groups, and one-on-one consultations to assist faculty members and graduate students as they document their teaching and their students’ learning.
Course Development: Our consultants often meet with individual faculty members and associate instructors to help design new courses or revitalize existing ones. This includes but is not limited to defining course goals, identifying learning objectives, developing class activities, and using appropriate assessment and grading methods.
Assess Student Learning: We work with instructors to design custom learning assessments that help instructors gain feedback about what students are learning. These learning assessments include non–graded, in–class activities (Classroom Assessment Techniques), student self–assessments, and knowledge surveys.
Test Writing: Although valid and reliable tests are never easy to create, when properly written they can be a way to accurately assess student learning while indicating the overall success of your class. But writing fair and equitable tests requires both patience and experience. Our instructional consultants help faculty and adjunct instructors write tests that are based upon course objectives and that are reliable indicators of student learning.
Student Evaluations of Teaching: These evaluations are important tools in improving one’s teaching craft, but they are often difficult to interpret both because of the overwhelming nature of the data, and because of the personal nature of the comments. Our consultants meet with individual faculty members and associate instructors to interpret mid–semester and end–of–semester student evaluations of teaching, to conduct focus groups, or to devise shorter classroom assessment techniques.
Observe Your Class: Scheduling a classroom observation is a way to gather information and gain new insights about how your class is working. Such data augments student evaluations and other classroom assessments. If you would like to schedule a classroom observation, please plan a few weeks ahead of the class you want observed.
Videotape Your Class: Being videotaped during a class is an excellent way to see yourself through the eyes of your students. We suggest that you first meet with one of our consultants to become familiar with the process and to identify some goals. After the class has been videotaped, you will meet again to review the tape, discuss the class and how well you achieved the goals you set out for yourself. The consultant not only serves as a sounding board for your own thoughts, relating those thoughts to the appropriate research on teaching and learning, but also serves to model a beginning learner in your discipline.
Our Teaching Library: Books on teaching and learning are available for reference and loan at our library in Franklin Hall 004. We also have extensive holdings of several leading journals on teaching and learning that may be used for reference, and a selected list of videotapes on topics such as collaborative learning in the sciences, lively classroom discussion, and making large classes work.

[5] All graduate students: Artist Diploma Audition

School-wide Artist Diploma Auditions for the Spring 2010 semester will be held Wednesday, February 24, 3:30-6 PM in Ford Hall. If necessary, additional auditions will be scheduled for Friday, February 26.

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning summer or fall 2010; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.

Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the spring semester if they wish to begin the AD program in summer or fall 2010; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.

How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, January 22 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, February 12.

The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.

Information about the AD program and this School-wide audition (including new repertory guidelines) is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Diploma.shtml.

If you have questions, please contact the Music Graduate Office (MU011, musgrad@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

[3] All graduate students: An Education course that may be of interest

Please note that this course will not necessarily fulfill any degree requirements, we’re just pointing it out because it may be of interest to students who plan to teach on a college campus at some point.

To Students Who Are Interested in Teaching:

Teaching is best cultivated through mastering basic techniques, learning from the experiences of others, and studying the theoretical underpinnings of the practice. In the first part of EDUC-C 750: Learning and Teaching on the College Campus, students will design an undergraduate course and practice their in-class teaching skills. In the second part some students will teach a 2nd 8weeks course in a supportive environment , while other students will research a teaching/learning issue. The course will explore numerous active learning strategies and classroom assessment techniques to engage undergraduates and students will develop their own teaching style. The syllabus is attached.

EDUC-C 750 Section 16397 11:15A-02:00P Thursdays ED 1210

Graduate students,

Here are the topics for this week’s Music Graduate Office announcements; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] All graduate students: Artist Diploma Audition
[2] All doctoral students: Doctoral Styles Exam
[3] All graduate students: Registration reminder

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor
________________________________________________________________________

[1] All graduate students: Artist Diploma Audition

School-wide Artist Diploma Auditions for the Spring 2010 semester will be held Wednesday, February 24, 3:30-6 PM in Ford Hall. If necessary, additional auditions will be scheduled for Friday, February 26.

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning summer or fall 2010; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.

Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the spring semester if they wish to begin the AD program in summer or fall 2010; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.

How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, January 22 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, February 12.

The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.

Information about the AD program and this School-wide audition (including new repertory guidelines) is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Diploma.shtml.

If you have questions, please contact the Music Graduate Office (MU011, musgrad@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

[2] All doctoral students: Doctoral Styles Exam

To all doctoral students:

The date of the doctoral styles examination is approaching, and we are writing to remind you about the exam and the requirement. The styles exam will be offered for the only time this spring on Saturday, January 30, 2010, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. in Sweeney Hall (M015).

--Doctoral students who began their program in the summer or fall of 2009 are required to take the exam on Saturday, January 30, 2010. Please sign up online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/som/grad/Doctoral/StylesSignUpForm.shtml or in person in the Music Graduate Office by Friday, January 15. Please note that January 30 will be your only opportunity to take the styles exam. If you have already taken MUS-T 545 with a grade of “B” or higher, you will not need to take the exam.

--Doctoral students who have been given permission to take the exam in spring 2010 (because they did not pass the exam in spring 2009), please sign up online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/som/grad/Doctoral/StylesSignUpForm.shtmll or in person in the Music Graduate Office by Friday, January 15. If you are unsure about whether you were given permission to retake the exam, please email or make an appointment right away to speak with Sara Erbes or Prof. Isaacson.

Students who have a conflict with a religious observance on the exam date should contact Prof. Eric Isaacson, Director of Graduate Studies, right away to arrange an alternative time (you can email musicdgs@indiana.edu).

Information on the exam is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/som/grad/Doctoral/Styles.shtml. Samples of old exams are on reserve in the Music Library, including the complete exam from Spring 2002, with recorded examples.

Please get in touch with the Music Graduate Office if you have questions.

9 December 2009: To all graduate students

To all graduate students who started new programs in Fall 2009

Good morning,

If this fall (2009) was your first semester of enrollment in a master’s or doctoral program, you will have one more opportunity to take any Graduate Entrance Exams you did not pass in August 2009 (and that opportunity is the week before your second semester of enrollment). The exam schedule is online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Dates.shtml#GEE. If you register for the spring 2010 semester, this is your only opportunity to retake the entrance exams.

You do not need to sign up for the Music History, Aural, and Written Theory exams - just come to the exam with a picture ID. You do need to sign up for a Sight Singing exam time by contacting the Music Graduate office between now and Wednesday, January 6. To sign up for a sight singing exam time, either call 855-1738, stop by the Music Graduate Office (Merrill Hall 011), or email musgrad@indiana.edu with a request for an exam time. If you email, please include your full name, ID number, and major in your request.

You do not need to take any exam which you have already passed or if you are enrolled in the review course this fall (although if you get an unsatisfactory grade in a review course this fall semester you can re-take that exam in January 2010 to try to complete the proficiency requirement for that subject).

For your information, the review courses are generally offered on the following schedule:

M541 Early Music History Review - every Fall, Spring, and Summer Session II
M542 Late Music History Review - every Fall, Spring, and Summer Session II
T508 Written Theory Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II
T509 Sight Singing Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II of odd numbered years
T511 Aural Music Theory - every Spring and every Summer Session II of even numbered years

The Graduate Entrance Exams and review courses are not required for Diploma and Visiting Students.

Remember that our website www.music.indiana.edu/graduate is a great source of information about program requirements.

Please contact me if you have any questions. If you would like to set up an appointment to talk in person, please either call 855-1738 or stop by the Music Graduate Office to set up an appointment time.

[5] All graduate students – Application for Graduation reminder

Remember that if you plan to graduate this December you need to submit an Application for Graduation. If you do not remember whether you have already done this, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu). The way you get to your academic advisement report is to log on the OneStart, then click on the “student center” link. 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.

Once you get to the academic advisement report, click on the “expand all” button at the top of the report. Near the end of the academic advisement report there is a line for "Application for Graduation". If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation. If the line says "Satisfied," then we have. If you haven’t submitted an application yet, you can do so online by following the links on this page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Graduation.shtml.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony. If you apply for graduation this late in the semester your name will not be in the Commencement program, but you will still have the option of attending the ceremony if you’d like.

[7] All graduate students: TA and grad student development conference: June 21-22, 2010, University of Toronto

Hello,
We hope you will consider submitting a proposal to, attending, and/or encouraging your graduate students to attend the conference Navigating your Path: Exploring and Supporting Teaching Assistant and Graduate Student Development. This conference, to be held June 21-22, 2010 at the University of Toronto, is for graduate students, faculty, TA developers, librarians, student support staff, and industry professionals. Proposals are due January 15, 2010.

Topic areas of the conference include:
P – PROFESSIONAL SKILLS – What are the skills that will enable a graduate student to make a successful transition from academic work to a professional position? How, and when, do graduate students acquire these skills?
A – ACADEMIC RESEARCH – To what extent is the undertaking and management of academic research explicitly taught as part of a graduate degree program? How are graduate students prepared to initiate and oversee research projects? What grounding in ethical approaches to research is provided to graduate students and how are they trained to examine the moral implications and societal impact of their work?
T – TEACHING COMPETENCE – Can graduate students identify theories of learning and articulate how knowledge is processed in their disciplines? How has TA training changed over the past decade? How does unionization affect the development of the graduate student TA? How successful is the work of undergraduate teaching assistants?
H – HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT – Building on Ernest Boyer’s call for graduate education to “give larger meaning to specialized knowledge” (Boyer, 1990, p. 68), this stream will explore programming that seeks to combine teaching, research and professional skills development in graduate students. How will programming that focuses on responding to change, showing leadership, linking research to societal needs, linking research and teaching across disciplines, active citizenship, the ability to work in a diverse setting, etc. enrich the graduate experience? Does such programming support graduates in new ways?

More information about the conference and the call for proposals can be found at: http://www.teaching.utoronto.ca/conference2010/.
Questions about the conference can be directed to ctsi.conference2010@utoronto.ca.

[3] All graduate students: Temporal Tools Showcase

Chasing the Ephemeral:
Time, Timelines, and New Research Tools

Temporal Tools Showcase
November 9, 2009
From 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities, Herman B. Wells Library, Room E170D

The brilliant jazz woodwind player Eric Dolphy once said, “When you hear music, after it’s over, it’s gone, in the air. You can never capture it again.” Transient information like that contained in musical sound is vital to many fields in the arts, humanities, and sciences; but it is challenging to work with because, like music, it not only disappears “when it’s over”, but remains in motion for the duration of its natural life.

Few people are aware of the tremendous amount of activity going on at Indiana University—development of new temporal tools as well as creative uses of existing tools—in a long list of fields. Many projects here have developed or are now developing tools to overcome the ephemeral nature of temporal phenomena and provide the ability to create, play back, analyze and/or annotate them. These projects range from music to psychology and brain sciences to ethnography.

To foster communication between people who need to use tools that treat information over time or are already doing so, we invite you to a “Temporal Tools Showcase” on November 9, 2009 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, at the Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities, Herman B. Wells Library, Room E170D. We expect to show several IU campus projects that employ temporal tools. These will include:
• the EVIA Annotator’s Workbench for ethnography
• the Variations audio timeliner
• a multimedia analysis system developed by the Psychology and Brain Sciences Program
• a chronology study using the SIMILE Timeline toolkit in the History Department
• a patchwork of editing programs used for sound analysis for projects in Ethnomusicology
• and a prototype of a “General Temporal Workbench” designed to facilitate work with any and all temporal phenomena.

Please drop in any time from 3-5 p.m. to look at these tools and discuss how these and similar tools are being used now and how they might be used by others—for example, you. Refreshments will be served.

[4] Masterclass for graduate students (classroom teaching)

Master Class for Graduate Students
Monday, Nov 2, 1-3pm, Ballantine Hall 335
Monday, Nov 2, 4-6pm, Chemistry Building 122

Graduate students are invited to observe graduate student Sarah Florini as she leads students in small group discussion in a 75-minute Introduction to Communication class of 24 students. Afterwards meet with her to discuss what she did in the classroom and why. Both sessions are the same, so graduate students should register for only one of the two sessions. Space is limited to 10 seats per session; registration is required by Tuesday, October 27: http://www.iub.edu/~teaching/ourservices/events_sem.php.

[2] All graduate students – Auto-W Deadline
[3] All students who started new graduate programs in fall 2009 – A few reminders

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

[1] All graduate students – Registration

Registration for the spring semester will begin on Thursday, October 22. Please remember that you will need to submit a Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before you will be eligible to register. We are only accepting on-line Program Planning Sheets, which you can fill out at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/ProgramPlanningSheet.shtml.

For links to the on-line Schedule of Classes and information about how to prepare for registration, please read the following web page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Registration.shtml. There may still be a few changes to the Schedule of Classes before registration, but you can go ahead and submit your program planning sheet now. You will not be eligible to register until after you have submitted your program planning sheet, your registration plans have been approved, and your “enrollment appointment time” (the time the Registrar’s office has assigned as the first possible time for you to register) has passed. You can submit your program planning sheet before your “enrollment appointment time.”

Don't forget that you can track your degree progress and requirements by using the Academic Advisement Report on OneStart. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Next, click on the Go to Student Center link. 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 the View My Advisement Report link to see your academic advisement report.

If you have any questions about your degree requirements, please make an appointment to see me by calling 855-1738. You can also email either serbes@indiana.edu or musgrad@indiana.edu with your questions.

[2] All graduate students: Auto-W Deadline

The Auto-W Deadline for fall semester 2009 is Wednesday, October 28.

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 Wednesday, October 28) 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 October 28).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on OneStart (http://registrar.indiana.edu/dropadd.shtml#edrop).

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. You do not have the option of using eDrop after the Auto-W deadline, you will need a late add/drop form from the Music Graduate Office. The main differences 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 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 remember that even when you drop a class you are still responsible for maintaining a full-time course load - at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students, at least 9 credits for diploma and visiting students.

If you want to add a course after the Auto-W deadline, you will need to pick up a late drop/add form in the Music Graduate Office and gather various signatures. The eAdd system (like the eDrop system) is not available after October 28.

[3] All students who started new graduate programs in fall 2009 – A few reminders

There have been a few questions recently from new students that I thought many of you who just started here this fall may want to have answered.

1. Registration

In order to register, follow the steps outlined earlier in this email. You do not need to get an advisor's signature from the person who advised you during orientation week. I will look over your program planning sheet after you submit the online program planning sheet and I will approve that as your advisor. You will not be eligible to register until after you submit your program planning sheet and it is approved.

Be sure to complete the Immunization Compliance Form on OneStart if you haven't already done so. To find the form on OneStart, click the Services tab, then the Student Self-Service link on the sidebar, then locate the Services & Information section. Then, click the Immunization Compliance link. The Registrar’s office will block your registration if you do not complete this form. http://registrar.indiana.edu/immunization.shtml has detailed information about this policy.

Students who have not yet submitted a final official transcript showing the completion date of your last program will not be eligible to register until that transcript is received in the Music Graduate Office. I emailed the students who have not yet submitted that transcript a few weeks ago.

2. Language requirements

If you are in a program that has a foreign language requirement, and you believe that you have already fulfilled all or part of that requirement with coursework from an earlier degree, check on your academic advisement report to see whether that has been updated to your records. (Instructions for getting to your academic advisement report are given in the registration section of this email). If your academic advisement report does not show that the requirement is complete, but you think it should, then please contact the Music Graduate Office. It is possible that it just hasn't been updated yet, but it's also possible that what you did in the past won't count, so you need to check now to confirm what you need to complete.

3. Graduate Entrance Exams
(For master’s and doctoral students. The Graduate Entrance Exams and review courses are not required for Diploma and Visiting Students.)

If this fall (2009) was your first semester of enrollment in a master’s or doctoral program, you will have one more opportunity to take any Graduate Entrance Exams you did not pass in August (and that opportunity is the week before your second semester of enrollment). The exam schedule is online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Dates.shtml#GEE. January 7 and 8, 2010 will be your only opportunity to take these exams again.

You do not need to sign up for the Music History, Aural Theory, and Written Theory exams - just come to the exam with a picture ID. You do need to sign up for a Sight Singing exam time by contacting the Music Graduate Office at the end of the fall semester or on Wednesday, January 6. I will send out an email announcement when we start scheduling Sight Singing exam times at the end of the semester.

You do not need to take any exam which you have already passed or if you are currently enrolled in the review course (although if you get an unsatisfactory grade in a review course this fall semester you can re-take that exam in January 2010).

For your information, the review courses are generally offered on the following schedule:

M541 Early Music History Review - every Fall, every Spring and every Summer Session II
M542 Late Music History Review - every Fall, every Spring and every Summer Session II
T508 Written Theory Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II
T509 Sight Singing Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II of odd numbered years
T511 Aural Music Theory - every Spring and every Summer Session II of even numbered years

Remember that the Music Graduate Office website www.music.indiana.edu/graduate is a great source of information about program requirements.

We thought you might be interested in seeing a picture of those of you who attended the Dean’s Welcome during the 2009 fall new student orientation. A link to that picture is here: http://www.music.indiana.edu/publicity/files/09-10-JacobsScholarsFellows/zoom/09-Graduates.html

[1] All graduate students Associate Instructors and future teachers - Campus Instructional Consulting workshop: Designing Grading Rubrics
Please forward the following Campus Instructional Consulting workshop announcement to your faculty and graduate students. Registration is not required to attend this workshop. If you have a disability or need assistance, arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. Please call 855-9023. Questions may be directed to Katie Kearns (kkearns@indiana.edu). Thank you!

Designing Grading Rubrics
Ballantine Hall 347
Friday, October 2, 2009
2:30—4:00 pm

Grading can be a time-consuming process, and grading consistency can wane when we are rushed or tired. Grading rubrics can speed up the grading process while at the same time assist with maintaining consistency. Katie Kearns from Campus Instructional Consulting and Jo Ann Vogt from the Campus Writing Program will share grading methods for assessing students' conceptual understanding of the material as well as for maintaining equity in assigning grades.

Music Graduate Office announcements

Graduate students,

I will be sending out email announcements in a slightly different format for the rest of the semester. Instead of sending a separate email for each subject, I will send an email once a week with all of the announcements for the week in one email. The reason for this change is to be able to send out more information (including announcements from other departments, fellowship and training opportunities, and that sort of thing) without cluttering your email inbox with too many emails.

I will format the weekly email announcement with a list of topics at the top and then details about the topics below (so that it is similar to the UITS Monitor). It is still very important that you read all email announcements from the Music Graduate Office.

Here are the topics for this week; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] All graduate students – Application for graduation
[2] Doctoral students – Suggestion for doctoral students who are nearing the end of the coursework stage of the degree
[3] All conducting majors – Recital reminder
[4] All master’s and doctoral students – University Graduate School’s internal awards/fellowships deadlines and details

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

[1] All graduate students – Application for graduation

Remember that if you plan to graduate this December, you need to submit an Application for Graduation. If you do not remember whether you have already done this, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu). The way you get to your academic advisement report is to log on the OneStart, then click on the “student center” link. 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.

Near the end of the academic advisement report there is a line for "Application for Graduation". If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation. If the line says "Satisfied," then we have. If you haven’t submitted an application yet, you can do so online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/ApplicationforGraduation.shtml (MA students should use this form: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Forms/Form--MAGraduationApplication.pdf and PhD students should use this form: http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Forms.shtml).

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony. However, if you are interested in attending the commencement ceremony please note that the deadline to receive information from the Ceremonies office and have your name appear in the commencement program is October 2nd. If you apply after this date, your name may not be in the Commencement program.

[2] Doctoral students - Doctoral Students nearing the end of coursework
I am writing particularly to doctoral students who are in their final semesters of course work and looking towards qualifying exams. As you plan your last courses and think about your schedule for written and oral qualifying exams, I want to encourage you to be thinking about the proposal you will write for a doctoral final project or dissertation. In almost every field at the Jacobs School of Music you need to have an approved topic for your final project or dissertation to make progress on your qualifying exams. In those fields you must have completed the proposal and have it approved before you can take a major-field exam or an oral exam (depending on your department).

You will certainly be eager to get your exams done and officially become a candidate for your degree. The thing that most often delays students is the lack of a complete topic proposal, which sometimes entangles them in time limits. (Students must pass the oral qualifying exam within one year of taking the first written exam.) I am writing to urge you to read about what is required, to consult with potential research committee members, and to plan your work on this proposal as you take your last courses. Details are at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Doctoral/docindex.shtml, organized by program. Planning ahead and getting a start on your proposal represents the best way to help yourself make uninterrupted progress.

Please get in touch with the Music Graduate Office if you have questions.

Eric Isaacson
Director of Graduate Studies

[3] All conducting majors – Recital reminder

Please remember that in order for your recital to officially count toward your degree, you have to complete the on-line request at http://www.music.indiana.edu/admin/recsched/ before the performance. If you do not officially schedule your recital through the Recital Scheduling office, that recital may not count toward your degree.

This is true for all degree and diploma recitals, but we’re pointing it out to conducting majors specifically because a few conducting students recently had questions about this.

[4] All master’s and doctoral students – University Graduate School’s internal awards/fellowships deadlines and details

University Graduate School Internal Awards/Fellowships Deadlines. If you have questions about any of these awards or fellowships, please direct them to Yvonne Dwigans (her contact information is listed below).

Please see the attached list [below] for the University Graduate School’s internal awards/fellowships deadlines for 2009-2010. All applications can be found on our website, http://graduate.indiana.edu/internal-awards.php.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dear students,

The Instrument Rental Office will have a job opening for a graduate string player during the Spring Semester of 2010. The job will entail working with students, faculty and staff in supplying needed instruments and accessories, and some maintenance and repair of instruments. The ideal candidate has good communication skills with people of all backgrounds, a thorough knowledge of modern string instruments and bows (knowledge of Baroque instruments and bows is a plus), and is flexible and patient. The candidate should also have a working knowledge of Microsoft Access, Outlook, Excel, and Word. Attention to detail is a must. The job consists of two hours per day in the office, Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, January 11, 2010 through Friday, May 7, 2010. The schedule for work is determined by mutual agreement of the three graduate assistants in the office and has some flexibility.

Artist Diploma Audition

To all Jacobs School of Music students:

School-wide Artist Diploma Auditions for the FALL 2009 semester will be held Wednesday, October 28, 3:30-6 PM in Ford Hall. If necessary, additional auditions will be scheduled on Friday, October 30.

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning spring 2010; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.

Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the fall semester if they wish to begin the AD program in spring 2010; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.

How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, September 25 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, October 16.

The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.

Information about the AD program and this School-wide audition (including new repertory guidelines) is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/Diploma.shtml.

If you have questions, please contact the Music Graduate Office (MU011, musgrad@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

9 September 2009: To all doctoral students

Doctoral Information Session

To all doctoral students:

If you are finishing course work and are approaching doctoral qualifying exams, we invite you to attend the Music Graduate Office's information session on written and oral qualifying exams, candidacy, and dissertations/final projects.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16 at 3:30 pm in the Music Graduate Office conference room (MU011). The meeting will be over by 5 pm.

We will provide a packet of useful information and outline the qualifying exam process. We will also go over dissertation/final project guidelines.

No sign-up is necessary. We hope to see you there!

8 September 2009: To all graduate students

Dropping and adding classes starting Tuesday, September 8

Starting today (Tuesday, September 8), adding and dropping classes will follow a different procedure than logging in to the registration system through OneStart.

To drop a class on Tuesday, September 8 through Wednesday, October 28, you can follow the procedure outlined here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/pdfs/eDrop.pdf. This procedure is called eDrop. Remember that dropping a class at this point in the semester means that you do not get a full refund of your tuition for the credits you drop. This is true even if you drop one class and add another in its place.

To add a class on Tuesday, September 8 through the end of the semester, you will be able to use the eAdd procedure (which is similar to the eDrop procedure; details are outlined here http://registrar.indiana.edu/pdfs/eAdd.pdf).

The eDrop and eAdd procedures are relatively new – please let us know if you have problems with these systems.

A few reminders – you are required to maintain full-time enrollment. Full-time enrollment for master’s and doctoral students is at least 8 credit hours (except for those doctoral students who are in the exam stage of their degree, and some masters student’s in their final semester) and full-time enrollment for diploma and visiting students is at least 9 credit hours.

The waitlist no longer exists. If you were on the waitlist for a class that was not fulfilled by the end of the day on Friday, September 4, that means that you are NOT enrolled in that class and you will need to add it to your schedule using the eAdd procedure if the professor of the class approves.

Please come by the Music Graduate Office is you have any questions or concerns. To set up an appointment to speak with me, call 855-1738.

Sara Erbes

31 August 2009: To all graduate students

Schedule adjustment, registration, and graduation reminder

Graduate Students:

The last day to adjust your schedule through the registration system on OneStart is Friday, September 4 (the last day of the first week of classes). There is an $8.50 per session schedule change fee that is charged when you adjust your schedule on OneStart through Friday, September 4.

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

Friday, September 4, 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 9 credits for diploma and visiting students. If you drop a class after Friday, September 4, you will not get a full refund of your tuition for that class.

Starting Tuesday, September 8, in order to add or drop a class you will be able to use the eAdd/eDrop system, I’ll send out more details at that time. The fees for dropping and adding classes are different after September 4.

If you are planning to graduate this December, you will need to fill out an application for graduation. You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/som/grad/ApplicationforGraduation.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011). The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete.

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart. The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link. 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. Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation". If the line is bold and says "false", we have not yet received an application for graduation. If the line is not bold and says "true," then we have.

Please contact the Music Graduate Office if you have any questions. Our phone number is 855-1738. Our email address is musgrad@indiana.edu. The best way to set up an appointment to see me is by calling or by stopping by our office in MU011.
