One course from the list of approved Writing II courses (available online, through degree audits, or in the Office of Student Services).  The course must be completed with a grade of “C” or better (grade of “C-“ is not acceptable) before the seventh term of residence in the School; the course may not be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis. Applicable Writing II courses may be applied to preparation for the major or the minor and, if the Writing II course has been approved for general education credit by the Undergraduate Council, the course may also fulfill a foundation requirement.

 

 

 

  

(3) Writing Requirements for Transfer Students.

  
  (a)

California community college transfer students with 90 units or more who have completed the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) as set forth in SR-478 will have completed the School’s writing requirements (Writing I and Writing II).

  
  (b)

No transfer student from another UC campus or other college shall be admitted to the School without completing a college-level writing course with a grade of “C” or better that the UCLA Office of Undergraduate Admission accepts as equivalent to English Composition 3; a grade of “C-“ is not acceptable.

  
  (c)

Transfer students whose native language is not English may be required to take the ESLPE, even if they have completed IGETC and an English Composition 3 equivalent at their transfer institution. Based on the results of the ESLPE, students may be held to as many as three English Composition courses in order to satisfy their ESL requirement (independent of any Writing I or Writing II requirement): EC 1A (formerly ESL 33B), EC 1B (formerly ESL 33C), and EC 2i. All courses in this sequence must be passed with a grade of “C” or better (a “C-“ is not acceptable), and may not be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.

 (C)

Foundations of Society and Culture: Three courses (at least 15 units); at least one from each of the two subgroups:  1) Historical Analysis and 2) Social Analysis.

 (D)

General Education and Transfer Students. Students who have transferred to the School from another UC campus after having satisfied their General Education Requirements prior to being admitted to UCLA are not required to complete the School’s General Education Foundation Area requirements. Transfer students from a California community college who have completed the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) are also not required to complete the School’s General Education Foundation Area requirements.

496.

Regulations for the Major. The candidate must complete the requirements for a major in the Herb Alpert School of Music with a grade-point average of at least 2.0 (upper division courses). Requirements listed under 496 A-G are for all degree programs offered by departments in the school, including interdepartmental programs sponsored jointly by two or more departments.

  
 (A)

Preparation for the Major is lower-division course work essential for the student to be successful in the major and should be completed in a student’s first two years of enrollment. The total number of preparation units required by the department when combined with units required by the School for General Education (~38 units) and Writing (~10 units) shall not sum to more than 90 units of lower-division work; exceptions require the approval of the Faculty Executive Committee of the School.

  
 (B)

A major shall consist of at least 36 upper-division units in the department but no more than 58 upper-division units in the department. Students in the Music Education program may need additional units in order to complete requirements for the Credential.

 (C)

All majors offered by the School will be “Capstone Majors” designed to enhance the development of advanced undergraduate students by engaging them in a culminating experience. To be defined by each department, the capstone requirement may be satisfied by an advanced upper division course that requires a recital or a studio project; or a senior seminar with a term paper; or a special studies course (195-199) with a term paper or creative project; or a comparable capstone experience approved by the Faculty Executive Committee of the School.

 (D)

The faculty of each department is responsible for establishing student learning outcomes that describe what students should know, be able to, and value by the end of their educational experience in each major. The learning outcomes may be focused specifically on the capstone experience or on the course work in the major. The student learning outcomes should be posted on online, and used to assess the effectiveness of the capstone experience or major as part of the department’s eight-year review.

 (E)

The Faculty Executive Committee of the School must approve majors and their requirements for graduation. As changes in major requirements occur, students are expected to satisfy the new requirements insofar as they can. Petitions for adjustment should be submitted to the department Chair for approval.

 (F)

A student in good standing who wishes to change her/his major may petition the School and department in charge of that proposed major, provided that the student can complete the proposed field of study without exceeding 195 units.

 (G)

A student in good standing may petition to complete two majors; one in the School and one outside the School, provided the requirements for both majors can be completed in 216 units (not counting Advance Placement units). Double majors within the School are not encouraged but may be completed with the Dean’s approval.

497.

Regulations for Undergraduate Minors

  
 (A)

With department and school approval, a student in good standing in the School may enroll in a Minor, one offered by the School or one offered outside the School, provided the student can complete the requirements for her or his major and minor within 195 units (not counting Advance Placement units).

  
 (B)

Departments in the School may offer Undergraduate Minors in accordance with Divisional Regulation A347. The Faculty Executive Committee of the School must approve the creation of a minor program, including the course requirements and admissions criteria.  As changes in requirements for a minor occur, students are expected to satisfy the new requirements insofar as they can unless they have completed 50% of the required coursework for the minor at the time the new requirements go into effect. Petitions for adjustment should be submitted to the department Chair for a departmental minor and to the Dean for a school-wide minor for approval.

 (C)

School-wide minors are considered “free-standing minors” because they have no specific departmental home; such minors shall be governed by a faculty advisory committee, appointed by the Dean.

498.

Honors

  
 (A)

Departmental Honors Program and Departmental Honors at Graduation. Each department in the School may establish an Honors Program that may include supplementary courses and advanced directed study, or both. The School’s Faculty Executive Committee must approve all honors programs. Students completing the program shall be awarded Departmental Honors or Departmental Highest Honors at graduation, according to criteria set by the department and approved by the School’s Faculty Executive Committee.

  
 (B)

Dean’s Honors. In accordance with campus regulation A-340(B), students with exceptional academic performance will be recognized each quarter by a transcript notation, “Dean’s Honors.” To receive Dean’s Honors the student must have at least 12 graded units per term, with a grade-point average of 3.8 for less than 16 units of work (3.7 GPA for 16 or more units). The transcript notation is posted on the student’s transcript for the appropriate term. Students are not eligible for Dean’s Honors in any given term if they receive an Incomplete or a Not Passed (NP) grade, change a grade, or repeat a course.

 (C)

Latin Honors. Latin Honors are awarded at graduation to students with superior grade- point averages. To be eligible for Latin Honors, a student must have completed at least 90 units for a letter grade at the University of California. The levels of honors are summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude. The minimum grade-point requirements for each level are subject to change on an annual basis. Required grade- point averages in effect in the graduating year determine student eligibility.

499.

Academic Progress

  
 (A)

Expected Progress. Students in the University of California are expected to complete 15 units each quarter. Accordingly, students who complete at least 45 units over a three quarter period (one academic year) are making expected progress and counted as a full- time equivalent student.

  
 (B)

Minimum Progress and Academic Probation. An undergraduate student in the School who does not pass at least 40 units during any three consecutive quarters shall be placed on probation for lack of minimum progress. Students on probation will be placed on a contract written to assist them in satisfying minimal progress to degree.  If a student on probation fails to meet the contract, he or she will be subject to disqualification from the major and enrollment in the University. An undergraduate student who fails to pass at least 32 units during any three consecutive quarters shall be subject to disqualification. All regulations governing minimum progress, academic probation and disqualification are reviewed and approved by the Faculty Executive Committee, posted online, and available in the Offices of Student Services in the School.

Students will be placed on academic probation if their term/overall GPA falls below 2.0 but is above or equal to 1.5. Students placed on probation will have two terms to bring their overall GPA back to 2.0. Students placed on academic probation who do not bring their overall GPA to 2.0 or above within two terms, or whose term GPA falls below 2.0, will become subject to disqualification. Students who are either on academic probation or who are subject to disqualification may not take classes on a Pass/No Pass option grading basis. Students who need to withdraw from any term while on academic probation or subject to dismissal from a previous term should meet with an academic counselor in the School’s advising unit.

 (C)
Study Lists.
  
  (1)

Without special permission, a student in good scholastic standing may sign up for a study list ranging from 15 (minimum) to 20 (maximum) units. A student in good standing with 15 or more completed UCLA units may petition to enroll in more than 20 units, up to 30 units, provided he/she has an overall grade-point average of 3.0 (B or better) and has attained at least a B average in the preceding quarter, with all courses passed.

  
  (2)

All repeated courses are counted in study list limits. The inclusion of English Composition A (zero units) in a student’s study list, or any other courses carrying a letter designation only, may reduce the study list requirement from a minimum of 12 units to 8 units in the term this course is taken.

  
  (3)
Concurrent enrollment in courses offered by University Extension or another institution of higher education is not permitted except under extraordinary circumstances, and no credit will be given for such courses unless the approval of the Dean has been obtained by special petition prior to enrollment.
  
 
 
(4)
The Faculty Executive Committee of the School is responsible for approving rules that govern study lists for students enrolled in the Herb Alpert School of Music.
  (5)

A presentation of a study list by the student and its acceptance of the School evidences an obligation on the part of the student to faithfully perform the designated work to the best of her or his abilities. Withdrawal from, or neglect of, any course entered on the study list, or a change in program without permission of the Dean of the School renders the student liable to enforced withdrawal from the University or appropriate disciplinary action.
