Music Education majors are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 in order to make satisfactory academic progress. Majors matriculating from Fall 2017 have a required study abroad experience generally taken in the 4th semester.

While we review all applications individually and holistically, our expectation is that all undergraduate students accepted for transfer into any of the teacher education programs at NYU Steinhardt, including Music Education, will have at least a cumulative B average in their coursework.
