University Academic Integrity
Students are expected to abide by UNT’s “Student Standards of Academic Integrity” document found at:
Furthermore, students enrolled in any section of Voice are expressly forbidden from studying with another voice teacher, either on- or off-campus, without the consent of their voice instructor. Violation of this policy is considered grounds for removal from the Division of Vocal Studies.
Any falsification of official documents, including Repertoire Sheets, is considered a violation of this policy. This includes, but is not limited to, listing repertoire as memorized that is not and listing previously studied repertoire as new. It is also considered a violation to give another student’s name to a student assistant taking attendance at a voice event.
Membership in a voice studio is a privilege, not a right. It is expected that students will behave in a professional manner at all times. Individual teachers have the right to grant or deny membership in their own studios.
Additional wording for Graduate Students from the Graduate Student Handbook:
Professional Expectation Policy
The UNT College of Music expects graduate students in music to be committed to their degree and to follow the UNT Code of Student Conduct (University Policy Manual, section 07. 012). Success in a graduate program requires students not only to meet minimum academic standards but also to be active contributors to the artistic and scholarly community of the College of Music. Hence, students must exhibit professional behavior, which includes (but is not limited to): 1) attending classes and meetings (including seminars, masterclasses, and departmentals); 2) meeting area, division, college, and university deadlines; and 3) maintaining respectful interactions with all members of the UNT community. Students are also expected to adhere to professional standards as outlined in division/area handbooks. In cases where there is substantial evidence of unprofessional behavior, students will be removed from their program upon the recommendation of the director of graduate studies in consultation with the division chair and major professor. Students may appeal this decision by contacting the College of Music associate dean for academic affairs.
Students with Disabilities
All sections of Voice comply with the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act. For complete information see:
