I have vacation plans but still want to participate.
We pride ourselves on hosting an inclusive program. Vacation plans are usually not an issue. Please notify Jim Mooy if you have any questions.

Why are there so many course numbers listed on the Dual Enrollment Approval Form?
If it is your first time attending the Jazz Seminar, you only need to enroll in Mus 132A (CRN 80674).

The extra courses are on the forn because the state does not allow students to repeat a course. So if you wanted to come back next year and there was only one course on the form, you would have to go all the way back to your school with a different course number and get another signature. By listing all the courses on one form, repeat students don't have to remember the exact course number they've enrolled in previous years, and it saves parents the trouble of making multiple trips to the student's school and the SBCC Admissions office.

I brought the completed forms to the Admissions and Records office at SBCC but they gave me more paperwork to complete.
Contact Jim Mooy immediately!
Occasionally there are new employees at the counseling desk who are unaware that our jazz students below the 9th grade do not require additional interviews or paperwork. If you are being asked to complete additional requirements beyond a Admissions Application and a High School Dual Enrollment form, ask to speak to the Supervisor of Admissions.

I have exceeded the maximum number of repeats for this class.
This problem has been fixed.. The solution is to enroll in Music 132B (CRN# 80473) instead of Mus 132 or 133.

My local Jr. High student is being categorized as Non-Resident
There is a glitch in the Online Application software that will categorize your student as an non-resident if you do not select a local high school. Send me an e-mail at with your student's name and K number and I will get it to the person in admissions who will fix the problem. The old fashioned paper application does not have this issue.
