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.

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 Option: is a WSU ONLINE registration process and requires admission to the graduate school either as a degree bound or non-degree student.  Specific instructions are listed below. We prefer that you are admitted as a degree-bound master's student unless you already have a master of music education degree.  Please contact Dr. Bernstorf or Dr. Oare to help you understand why this may be imporatnt to you. You may start the graduate admission process by clicking here. If you are already admitted you may go to the MyWSU portal and add the classes through their CRN numbers. If you have any difficulty, contact us for assistance to clear you.

Noncredit Option: The noncredit fee per level is $500.   Registration and payment for the noncredit option will be made through the CFAI Marketplace site. Please use the large link below:


Enrollment for Undergradaute or Graduate Credit:   WSU online enrollment for credit is in April. Graduate credit for 2018 is obtained by enrolling in the appropriate sections (methodology and solfege) and paying the Kodaly fee plus  5 hours of tuition at the workshop rate and the associated student fees. For 2018, those costs are handled through your WSU online enrollment and payment. Tuition and fees for the 5 credit hours will be $2021.55 (inclusive). If your school district is paying the $500 fee, your cost will be $1521.55. 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 one-time charge is required for admission to the graduate school or for undergraduate admission. For details on WSU admission go directly to the Admissions Gateway link here.    We look forward to working with you.
