Registration Policies

Please see course notes in the Time Schedule for specific enrollment/registration policies.  Contact the advisers if you have further questions.

FIRST DAY ATTENDANCE
Demand for Music classes is extremely high. Instructors assume that if you are not present for roll call on the first day of a music class, you have decided not to remain enrolled. Music courses are popular and it is important to be registered by the first day of class versus the first week. If you miss the first day without permission, it is your responsibility to drop the course.  You may contact the instructor in advance and receive her/his permission to be absent on the first day.

ADD CODES
Add codes can be obtained by contacting the instructor of the course you would like to attend. Find out more information about add codes in the UW Student Guide.

PARTICIPATION
Absences from class prevent participation and may negatively affect grades.

If you miss class due to illness or emergency, notify your instructor, provide documentation, and set up a timeline to complete missed assignments and exams.


PLAGIARISM
Plagiarism is using the creations, ideas, words, inventions, or images of someone else in your own work without formal acknowledgement or permission. This applies to written papers and research as well as to musical pieces.

Please check with your instructor if you have questions about what constitutes plagiarism.

Instances of plagiarism will be referred for disciplinary action to the Vice Provost for Student Relations.


INCOMPLETE GRADES
View the UW Student Guide for further information about Incomplete Grades.


CONCERNS ABOUT A COURSE, A GRADE, OR AN ISSUE CONCERNING THE SoM
Talk with the instructor in charge of the class as soon as possible. If this is not possible or productive, make an appointment with the Head of the program in question. If you’re not sure who that is, contact the Advising Office.

 
EXAMINATION SCHEDULE
Students are required to take exams as scheduled by the University of Washington.

Exceptions may be granted in cases of documented emergencies but must be approved by the instructor. 

View the UW Student Guide for further information about examination schedules.
