American Band College

Where/when do I send my practical applications and research projects?

Both MUST be shipped to the following address:

American Band College
6736 Jacob Lane
Springfield, OR 97478

All candidates must send their Practical Application and Research Projects to arrive by midnight on August 5. If projects are late, they will NOT be evaluated and will receive an automatic "F" grade. You will need to sign-up and pay tuition again for any project that receives an "F."

    • If either project fails, graduation for that summer will not be possible.

Grades for all projects will be posted through the Central Washington University website by late August.

MAILING: Both projects may be shipped together. Each project should be in its own individual project envelope. Because your projects will not be evaluated if they arrive late, you must use great care in the mailing method.

Use USPS, UPS, or FedEx with exact guarantees for delivery. DO NOT require a signature when it arrives as it will not be delivered unless someone is available on this end to sign.
DO NOT use your project envelope as the shipping container.

WAIVE the signature requirement.

Use the tracking number to determine when your projects are delivered. Do not contact the ABC office by phone or email regarding arrival; we have over 350 projects arriving in a 10-day period.

PACKAGING PROJECTS: Be sure to place each project in its own project envelope as a separate entity. DO NOT put all your files on one flash drive for both projects, as your RE and PA will be graded by different people. You may ship projects together in the same box, however each must be in their individual project envelopes. If you do not use the project envelope provided, please use an envelope of similar size and attach the project page to the outside of the envelope with tape.

PLEASE DO NOT SEAL THE PROJECT ENVELOPES!! These must go to storage in pristine condition. Ship them in surrounding envelope or mailing box.

Be ABSOLUTELY certain that you do not include CWU or Dept. of Music in the mailing address!!

PROJECT SUBMISSION AT ABC: If you are a 2nd, 3rd or 4th year ABC student, and you have your projects completed, you can turn them in to us at ABC on a date specified during ABC. You will receive more information once you get to Ashland.
