Music minors are an important part of the music program at the University of Portland. They are actively involved in ensembles, lessons, and classes. To insure the successful completion of the music minor, the following policy has been established by the music faculty.
1. Minors are expected to meet with the faculty advisor to music minors at least once each year.
2. All music minors are required to declare the music minor with the College of Arts and Sciences.
3. Music minors are required to make continual progress toward completing the minor. If they have received a scholarship as a minor but are not taking classes toward it on a regular basis their scholarship will be terminated. This decision will be made by the advisor to minors.
4. Music minors are eligible for scholarships to cover the private lesson fee and some tuition. If a music minor does not receive a scholarship, the student may apply and audition for the following semester. See the Scholarship section of the Music Study Handbook for more information.
5. Student progress in private lessons will be demonstrated during performance final exams during the four semesters in which the student is taking lessons.
6. Music minors receiving scholarships must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in music classes and 2.5 overall GPA.
