Jury requirements are different this Spring due to the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Updated requirements are listed below by division.
The following BSOM undergraduate students must submit a Full Division Faculty Jury (FDFJ) Request Form before performing the FDFJ:
– Non-performance majors at the 260a/b/RC level and performing the FDFJ this spring, for Recognition Recital consideration should fill out the non-performance major FDFJ form by April 15.
– Performance majors at the 312d (or 210d voice performance) level should fill out the performance major FDFJ form by May 7.
Request to Postpone a Spring 2021 Jury
If you are/were unable to perform and record your jury for Spring 2021, contact your performance instructor and division head immediately. You must also explain your need to postpone via email to the appropriate BSOM Director of Undergraduate or Graduate Studies listed below no later than Monday, May 17, 2021.
If you are/were experiencing a health situation or injury, then you must also provide adequate written documentation (from a physician or health/wellness center) along with your request to postpone by the May 17 deadline. The undergraduate or graduate director may require additional details from you before making a final decision. If it is impossible for you to provide documentation by the deadline, inform the undergraduate or graduate director; he may require corroboration from your performance instructor to consider extending the deadline for documentation.
Director of Undergraduate Studies (for undergraduate students): Prof. Stephen Page <email@example.com>
Director of Graduate Studies (for graduate students): Prof. Patrick Hughes <firstname.lastname@example.org>
IMPORTANT: A request to postpone a Spring 2021 jury, including written documentation as mentioned above, must be made by the May 17, 2021 deadline, or an official postponement will not be granted. A student without an official postponement of the jury will not be advanced to the next performance level and is required to repeat the performance course at the same level. This also affects a student’s final grade for the performance course where jury grades are a portion of the final grade.
For most areas, Spring 2021 juries that have been officially postponed are to be rescheduled for a completion date by the student and instructor (or other division faculty member/committee), and completed and adjudicated between the 1st and 12th class days of the Fall semester.
