Recital permission must be obtained no later than the semester before the semester in which the recital is to be performed. The student’s performance repertoire and the recital program must be in accordance with the guidelines and expectations established by the respective performance area.

Students studying for the MM degree with an emphasis in performance should plan to be in residence during at least one fall or spring semester, since continuous study opportunities may not exist in the summer session.
