General Information for all students

Wichita State University offers three levels of Kodály training.   Each program is designed to lead toward Kodály certification requirements. The WSU program is nationally endorsed by the OAKE (Organization of American Kodaly Educators). Space is limited.

All participants are asked to make a reservation through the College of Fine Arts Institute (CFAI) by calling 316-978-3581 or emailing kodaly@wichita.edu so we can contact you as needed.  You also may make a reservation in person Mon-Fri at CFAI between 1-5 p.m. in Jardine Hall Room 112 on the WSU campus.

Kodaly training can be taken as a non-credit option or for graduate credit.  Non-credit registration is through the College of Fine Arts Institute.  Credit registration is through the WSU graduate school.  

  • Graduate Credit (including fee): TBD
  • Non-credit option:  TBD.

Graduate credit for 2014 is obtained by enrolling in the appropriate sections (methodology and solfege) and paying the Kodaly fee plus  5 hours tuition at the workshop rate and the associated student fees. For 2014, those costs are handled through your WSU online enrollment and payment. Tuition and fees for the 5 credit hours will be $ XXXXX (inclusive). Payment will be online after your enrollment is processed.  There is a short-term loan option available through WSU.  You may be eligible for financial aid if you are taking additional hours. An additional charge of $50.00 is required for admission to the graduate school or $35.00 for undergraduate admission. For details on WSU admission go directly to the Admissions Gateway link here.    We look forward to working with you.
