To be accepted as a Graduate Jazz Major, students must pass the Graduate Arranging Entrance Exam (GAEE), thereby demonstrating skill in arranging equivalent to MUJS 3620 (second semester jazz arranging). Normally, students will complete this exam at the conclusion of MUJS 3620. However, a student experienced in jazz composition and arranging may take the exam earlier. In that case, the exam is given by petition. The GAEE is adjudicated by appropriate faculty. All graduate jazz students will be considered provisional until the GAEE is successfully completed.
