Music Theory Placement Exams

You must take all three quizzes by Monday, August 23, without help so we can determine what course level to place you in. You must earn at least 70% (C-) in order to place into a higher level of Musicianship. You may only take the assessment once.

Transfer and non-first year students: Your CFA academic advisor, Rochelle Walker, will make changes to your schedule based on your placement scores. It is your responsibility to notify her after you have completed the exam in order to make sure you are accurately placed for the fall semester. Please contact her at, or by phone at 702-895-5366 after you have completed the assessment for assistance in making adjustments to your course schedule.

Failure to take this assessment will result in you being placed in MUS 102 and may delay your progression toward graduation.

First year students straight from high school: Please contact your CFA first-year academic advisor, Ryan Ziegler, for placement. It is your responsibility to notify Ryan after you have completed the assessment. He can be reached via email at, or by phone at 702-895-5162.
