Academic Assistance

It is highly suggested that all students keep an open line of communication with their professional advisor in CASAS during the freshman and sophomore years.  Your advisor may be contacted with all questions concerning general education courses, graduation timelines and correlating course requirements.  Upon reaching junior status, students should contact his or her faculty advisor within the School of Music.  For more information about faculty advising, or if you have general questions, you can contact one of the department secretaries or somadvising@liberty.edu.

Any student needing to schedule an appointment with Dr. Vernon Whaley, Dean of the School of Music, will need to contact the Administrative Coordinator for the School of Music, Mrs. Kim Witt.  Any student needing to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Kinchen, Associate Dean for the Center of Music and Performing Arts, will need to contact his administrative assistant, Ms. Caroline Perricaudet.  Any student needing to schedule an appointment wirh Dr. Doug Crawley, Associate Dean of the Center for Music and Worship, will need to contact his administrative assistant, Mrs. Stephanie Pritchard.

Christian/Community Service with Ensembles

If an ensemble is listed in the Christian/Community Services Catalog of Courses, it may be taken for Christian/Community Service credit. Please note that each ensemble has its own participation arrangement with the office of Christian/Community Service. It is possible in some ensembles for a student to receive course credit and Christian/Community Service credit at the same time (Marching Band for instance), but in general, course credit cannot be earned contemporaneously with Christian/Community service credit.
