AN IMPORANT NOTE REGARDING MASSACHUETTS STATE REGULATIONS AND THE 12 CREDIT OPTION
Massachusetts state regulations distinguish the 12 Credit Option with two approaches to meeting the requirements for the Professional license in music:
Gordon College's 12 Credit Option Program was approved as part an official DESE site re-approval and re-accreditation visit in April 2011.
In the case of an Approved 12 Credit Option Program, candidates must formally complete all admissions requirements and the program of study as listed by Gordon College.
Upon completion of all requirements, Gordon College will handle each candidate's professional licensure application paperwork with DESE through the college's designated Graduate Education Licensure Officer.
In this case, no formal application to the Gordon College 12-Credit Approved Program would be necessary. Candidates would be welcome to enroll in graduate level music courses, and would be individually responsible for licensure application and documentation paperwork with the Department of Ed, without the assistance of the College's designated Licensure Officer as a conduit.
