The CCU Office of Financial Aid has mandates that students who receive any financial assistance in the form of stipends, Chanticleer Band Program Awards or other band-related awards MUST be full time CCU students and enrolled in the appropriate course. This mandate is for ALL CCU ensembles for both Fall and Spring semesters. Students are still welcome to participate in the CCU Bands without enrolling in the course, but will not be eligible for any band financial assistance.
Participation in the CCU Symphonic Band will satisfy a core requirement for non-music majors. Enrolling in MUS 124A fulfills the creative expression requirement in the Core Curriculum if taken for 3 semesters. No audition required for enrollment so get on board!
