Student Handbook

The department of music student handbook (PDF) includes policies and requirements, degree checklists, and much more. Its purpose is to ensure that students enrolled in the program have at their disposal the guidelines and requirements applicable to their respective degree programs.

The handbook is intended to take the Ole Miss music major from matriculation at the University of Mississippi to a successful career as a professional musician or music educator. The University’s Undergraduate and Graduate Academic Catalogs are the ultimate source of official information concerning courses and degree plans, but the Student Handbook will also be a helpful tool for music students. Please review very carefully all the material. While your advisor and the music faculty will assist you in completing the requirements for your degree, the ultimate responsibility for your educational progress is yours.
