  6. August 1 is the final deadline, as designated by the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, to submit your graduate report (video teaching demonstration and associated reflection) through the ETDR system and to compete the Exit Survey and Alumni Association Information.

You will receive an email via campus mail in late Spring through which you are required to respond back to Dr. Burrack, Chair of Graduate Studies, of the receipt of the email constituting an electronic signature that you have read the requirements and conditions for matriculation in the masters program and that you understand the consequences of not doing so will delay your graduation until the Fall semester and require additional enrollment in the Fall semester. A copy of this and the returned communication, with the date and time of receipt, will be placed into your student file.
