The Performer’s Certificate is designed for undergraduate students with outstanding musical and performance ability who do not wish to include the academic component of the Bachelor of Music curriculum. Majors are available in guitar, orchestral instruments, organ, piano, and voice. The Performer’s Certificate is normally a three-year course of study, with a minimum residency of two years. At least 80 semester hours of course credit are needed for the completion of requirements. Candidates must participate in ensembles throughout their period of study.

A student who has matriculated into the Performer’s Certificate program may later transfer into the Bachelor of Music degree program with the approval of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and the Undergraduate Committee.

The admission requirements for the Performer’s Certificate are the same as those for the Bachelor of Music degree program.

For details about the Performer’s Certificate, see Section 2-6 of the Academic Catalog.
