Faculty Advisor

Your faculty advisor is the person who will assist you in registering for classes and counsel you regarding your major program. In most cases, your advisor is your applied teacher and their name is listed in your acceptance letter. Check with Ms. Amy Neace if you do not know your advisor's name. A final list will be posted online after the first week of school.

In the case of Music Education majors, you should also check in with the Coordinator of Music Education who will help you navigate a more complicated curriculum.
