MSU Graduate Studies offices offers academic advising for all graduate students to understand degree requirements, courses needed and to explore options. Degree plans are very individualized, so we highly recommend that all graduate students in the College of Music plan to meet with our Graduate Advisor once a semester to make sure they are on track to completing their degrees. Registration for the following academic year begins in late March until the semester begins.  

To schedule an advising appointment with Ms. Hoekstra, email Anne Simon or call 517-353-9122.

Ms. Hoekstra also offers phone appointments for incoming students.
