MUSIC SERVICE FEE INFORMATION
Enrollment in most music courses requires a Music Service Fee, which is essentially a lab fee that helps the department purchase and maintain equipment used in our classrooms and rehearsal and performance halls. The fee includes admission to most department concerts. The fee is $40 per semester for those enrolled in music major courses, or $20 for those enrolled only in general education courses (MUSC 8, 18, 101, 127, 129).
These fees are automatically added to your university fees when you are enrolled in music courses. The Music Fee does not apply to online courses.
