College Credit for The Judges Academy courses is being offered through the VanderCook College of Music
The Marching Roundtable Judges Academy and VanderCook College of Music are partnering to offer three graduate-level college credits for each of the Judges Academy Courses. Level One, Level Two Music, and Level Two Visual are each available, and any student (past or present) can receive this college credit upon completion of the coursework.
The cost of tuition for each course (and for three college credits) from VanderCook is typically $900. However the Judges Academy is offering to pay half of your tuition fee through a Judges Academy Scholarship. So the cost for Judges Academy students for the three hours of credit will only be $450.
Students will submit their registration to VanderCook at the END of their work on the Judges Academy course. Students who have already graduated from one of these Judges Academy courses can submit their registration to VanderCook at any time and will receive the credit hours at the end of the next available semester.
Any student wanting more information about requirements or procedures should Contact Tim Hinton.
Students wanting to register for college credit through VanderCook will do so on the VanderCook Judges Academy Page.
