Graduate Performance Diploma in Opera

Key Policies 

  • Students must earn at least a B- in all courses taken for graduate credit for those courses to count toward the diploma. 
  • Graduate Performance Diploma students in Opera take up to 9 credits per semester, with additional enrollments in a given semester on a per credit basis. 
  • Non-native English speakers are evaluated upon matriculation and may be required to take specific English as a Second Language course work as part of their program. Students taking ESL are not permitted to enroll in certain kinds of courses until they have attained appropriate levels of proficiency in English; however, the core courses required in the GPD may be begun on arrival at The Conservatory. GPD students for whom ESL work is required remain in that work until they complete the second semester of intermediate level work with a B- or better.
