music is done concurrently with the usual
University work of the Third and Fourth Years
the credit will be assigned in the Fourth Year;
if a student enters Third Year University having
already acquired the diploma, the credits will
normally be assigned evenly between the Third
and Fourth Years.  No credits for music will
