This is a Handbook for our current undergraduate majors and minors in music and dance, and for prospective undergraduate students who want to dig deeper into how we manage our affairs. It presents information on degree options, academic requirements, policies, and regulations governing the undergraduate degrees offered by the Glenn Korff School of Music in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We are directed in matters concerning our undergraduate degrees and programs by the NU Board of Regents, by UNL's Chancellor Executive Vice-Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer (in the Office of Academic Affairs in Canfield Hall), by our undergraduate College at UNL (the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, with its offices in the Woods Art Building) and its Dean, and by our national accrediting agencies, the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) and the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD).

With UNL as an accredited member of NASM and NASD, the Glenn Korff School of Music is able to offer its undergraduate students an exciting range of opportunities and degree options. Whether a student is considering a dance major, a music education major, a music performance major, a music major combined with a strong secondary emphasis outside of music, or a minor in music or dance, the Glenn Korff School of Music offers a curriculum designed to provide the opportunities necessary for growth in knowledge and artistry in the student's chosen area, taught by faculty members dedicated to the highest standards of excellence.

It is important to remember that it is the undergraduate student’s own responsibility to be aware of policies and requirements as they apply to degree programs. Personnel in the Music Office and faculty advisors are available to answer questions and assist the student. Further information that may be of use to the student can be found in the current on-line UNL Undergraduate Catalog ( and on MyRed (, where each enrolled student can find their own individualized Degree Audit.
