The links in the left column of this webpage take you to each of the sections of the Graduate Center's Student Handbook.

The Handbook for Doctoral Students in Music is a compendium of the requirements, procedures, resources, and facilities of the program. The appendices include sample examinations, award, concert office and dissertation guidelines. As Professor Atlas, who created this Handbook, wrote in earlier editions, "Under no circumstances is the Handbook intended as a substitute for dialogue and communication." If you have any questions or uncertainty, please ask.
NB:  This program publication supplements the official Graduate Center Bulletin, as well as the current GC Student Handbook and the Announcement of Courses. Please make sure to consult these publications for official Graduate Center information.
