The Department Chair is initially your assigned advisor. Every music/audio major should counsel with the Department Chair regarding their degree plan and class selection prior to registration for the semester. Early in the Fall semester you will be assigned to your applied (or related field) instructor as an advisor. You should communicate with your advisor on a regular basis. Please do not go to another advisor to be enrolled in classes!
It is ultimately the responsibility of the student to fulfill all degree requirements and make application for graduation prior to the semester in which the degree is to be received. Check the academic calendar to find the deadline to apply for graduation. Degree check sheets are available to assist the student, but the SJC catalog is the ultimate authority. Students have the ability to do their own degree check in SOS by going to My San Jac GPS under My Student Records.
A number of courses are offered only in the Fall or the Spring semester; some courses are only offered in alternating years. Failure to enroll in classes at the appropriate time will delay your graduation! Please see the Degree Plan and carefully check the class schedule prior to pre-registration.
