2021 registration is coming soon!

How to submit your assignment. Your summary and reflections about each unit (approx. an hour of instruction) can be submitted electronically through email or via Canvas, CSU's online course portal. The online assignment allows for attending sessions, workshops, masterclasses, concerts, and all professional meetings. The downloadable assignment will be released in Jan., 2021

A Message from Adam Torres about the 2021 process:

I hope this note finds you well and in good spirits! On behalf of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Colorado State University, I want to say thank you for your work as music educators during this challenging time. I look forward to seeing you again when we can gather for CMEA in person.

This year, as in years past, CSU will continue to offer Continuing Education credits for registrants of the 2021 CMEA virtual conference. For 2021, we will offer the 1-credit option of of the assignment. The assignment will remain the same as in previous years (13 reflections for 1 credit) and will be accepted digitally via e-mail (Adam.torres@colostate.edu).

In lieu of paper forms, all registrations for MU 590D CMEA Clinic/Workshop Credits will occur electronically through the CSU Online Portal - access is coming soon. Additionally, all payments will be handled through RAMweb, the same platform used to obtain transcripts and access CSU records of coursework previously taken.

A link will soon be available for registration and will remain active until Feb. 1, 2021, after which you will be unable to register for credit through MU 590D.

When this link becomes active, you can visit and complete registration from any internet-capable device. If you have questions, please reach out to me for assistance.

This paperless process yields several advantages: registration should be verifiable instantly. Additionally, all payment information will be processed through secure servers, which provide extra security in protecting your payment information. Lastly, you can complete registration at your convenience, rather than having to wait in line at the Continuing Education Credits booth at CMEA.

If you have any questions about continuing education credits, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for all that you do to advance the worthy cause of music through your work as educators.
