All students registered for applied music credit are required to perform before a faculty jury. Undergraduate students perform juries annually and graduate students at least once during a degree program. Successful completion of a jury is related to the changing of a student’s class year; the sophomore jury is particularly crucial. Outstanding juries may lead to nominations for a Performer’s Certificate; conversely, students may be advised out of the degree following a failed jury. A week in April, during which all academic classes are canceled, is reserved for applied juries. On occasion, juries are scheduled by department, during the fall, and in exceptional circumstances during the summer session for students who need to retake a jury due to illness or failure.

More detailed information regarding the jury process may be found in Section of the Academic Policy Handbook.
