Students who score at least 60 on the Music Theory Assessment may register for MUS 111 Basic Musicianship I their first semester.  Students who score below 60 on the Assessment must earn a grade of C or better in MUS 110 Fundamentals of Musicianship before registering for MUS 111.  Students who score below 60 may retake the Music Theory Assessment before classes begin in the fall; if they then score above 60, they may bypass MUS 110 and register for MUS 111.

Because the MUS 111-112-211-212 music theory sequence is cumulative, it is a departmental requirement that a grade of C or above be earned in each course before proceeding to any of the subsequent courses in the sequence.
