About the Conservatory of Music Handbook
This Conservatory of Music Handbook provides music faculty and current music majors information and policies relating to the completion of all degree programs in music. While the Wheaton College Catalog is the primary source regarding auditions, enrollment and degree completion, this Handbook is a supporting document addressing a wide range of program details. In the case of discrepancies between the two documents, the Wheaton College Catalog has final authority. Students with questions about the Handbook and its policies can write to firstname.lastname@example.org. This 2010-11 edition is effective as of September 15, 2010. All subsequent changes will be reflected in the 2011-12 edition.
