The Student Academic Affairs (SAA) team processes paperwork related to many of these academic requirements and regulations for conservatory and double-degree students. Among the responsibilities of Student Academic Affairs:

  • coordinates academic advising;
  • makes advisor/teacher assignments;
  • provides information sessions for new and returning advisors;
  • oversees students’ academic standing by monitoring grade reports and communicating with students, their advisors, and the AS Committee; 
  • offers information and advice about academic policy issues and general academic requirements; and
  • plans and sponsors wellness-related programs designed specifically for conservatory students.

If you’d like to meet with one of the conservatory associate deans, please schedule a meeting in advance.
