Advising

The Department of Dance Chair matches each student with the most suitable advisor.

Students have files housed within the department of dance office that include academic materials for advising, assessment materials and medical information. You are encouraged to know and revisit these folders throughout your tenure as a dance major.

Every semester, you will meet with your advisor for a one-on-one appointment during the weeks designated for course planning. You receive a pin number to complete registration online and determines dance courses to enroll in for the upcoming semester. Dance courses are pre-registered, meaning that the department registers students into dance courses.  The semester course planning sessions serve as a formal opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have and/or any concerns the department may have regarding the student's progress technically, creatively, and academically.

All official records are kept in the office of the registrar. These include courses taken and grades awarded.

Specialized records, such as application for admission to the B.F.A. or the B.S., and program and progress assessment charts, are kept in the department of dance office in the student’s files.

The determination of technique level for each dance major is made by the appropriate dance faculty members and advised at each course planning session.
