 Message From the Dean of Students

Welcome to the 2017-18 academic year at Manhattan School of Music! The staff in Student Affairs is committed to making the environment at MSM welcoming for all. It is our job to make sure student needs are met inside and, particularly, outside the classroom. The Dean of Students Office is a place to bring your questions and concerns. I do my very best to find answers and support for all who turn to me.

Although we know students come to MSM to become the best musician they can possibly be, the School wants more than just that for our students. We want to help you learn to be a good citizen, to be in good health, to have the skills to succeed in whatever you choose to pursue.

This Student Handbook outlines what Manhattan School of Music has in place to support and enhance the student experience, as well as the policies and procedures we ask students to adhere to– the “do’s and don’ts” that you must live by in order to remain in good standing in the community. Please take a careful look at all the information that is offered to you in this Handbook.

Monica Coen Christensen, Ed.D.
Dean of Students
