A: MSM offers music performance degrees, and what better place to pursue performance than in NYC?! These degree offerings include the Bachelor of Music, Master of Music, Professional Studied Diploma, Doctoral of Musical Arts, and Artist Diploma. Our faculty are all performers who are passionate about teaching, (not the other way around), who have all had fabulous careers and are excited to share their knowledge with you, our incoming students.
A: Our Center for Music Entrepreneurship (CME) provides current students and alumni with “next step” mentoring through coursework, workshops, one-on-one career advising, and referral services for performing, teaching, and internship opportunities.
A: To learn more about living in Andersen Hall, please visit this page. You can view photos of the dorm through our Photo Tour and Instagram Story Highlight. Housing applications will be available to you once you receive your email with your MSM email and ID. Students can submit their roommate requests in the housing application, all other students are hand-matched by the Student Affairs team over the summer based on your living preferences and individual interests. If you have questions about the housing and roommate selection process, you may contact the Office of Residence Life at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A: A task force is currently working to develop plans for our residence policy in the fall and will ensure that it meets NYC guidelines. We do not plan to enforce a curfew or other restrictions about leaving Andersen Hall, but there may be stricter guidelines pertaining to visitors, and there may be other travel restrictions placed on our entire MSM community (though what these may be is yet to be determined).
A: All international students are required to purchase the MSM health insurance plan. Domestic applicants who currently have health insurance may complete a health insurance waiver and will not be enrolled in the plan. We have a variety of healthcare resources available on campus and can provide referrals for any service we are unable to provide. Additional details about the MSM health insurance plan for 2020-2021 will be available later this summer.
A: Of course! You can see our list of student organizations here. Feeling motivated to start a new organization on campus? Reach out to Student Engagement at email@example.com!
A: We have work study and non-work study jobs available for domestic and international students. You can find a full list of job opportunities here. This list will be updated for the 2020-2021 academic year later this summer.
A: The campus store will be closed (along with the rest of MSM’s campus) until the Fall semester begins. In the meantime, we hope you’ll celebrate your acceptance with our “Virtual Swag”, including an MSM poster and #MSMBound Facebook frame.
A: Yes! The Office of Student Engagement creates a Facebook group each year for new students. If you’ve already submitted your confirmation fee, you will receive an invite on May 18th.
A: Yes, you are able to confirm your enrollment now and choose to defer at a later time. You can choose to defer up to the day before classes begin! When deferring your enrollment, your confirmation fee will roll over to fall 2021. Please note, your scholarship award is not guaranteed to roll over, and you will be reconsidered for scholarship within the 2021 applicant pool.
