Is he majoring in music or in Sibelius?  If the former, he should be
able to hand in score sheets with music notation (even if they are in a
PDF created from hand-written scores) rather than notation files.

If they _offer_ the product, namely hand installations to the student as
course material, this changes the equation.  Though requiring music
students to use a proprietary computer operating system again would
leave the scope of a music education.

Still doesn't work with my notions of authority and respect for learning

would not call them unreasonable.
