Associate in Music - Direct Transfer

Designed as a Major Related Program (MRP) for transfer with junior standing for students who intend to major in music at a four-year college or university.

The Associate in Music Direct Transfer Agreement/Major Related Program (AM-DTA/MRP) is for students who intend to secure a bachelors degree in Music from a four-year college or university.  Students completing the Associate in Music DTA/MRP (who have also met any specific institutional GPA, performance, and audition requirements) will be regarded as having met the minimum preparation for consideration for admission to a baccalaureate Music program unless an exception is specifically noted in this agreement.

This degree requires completion of 101-104 credits in college-level coursework (courses numbered 100 and above) with a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA.  Minimum grade-point average requirements are established by each institution. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Required are fifteen (15) credits in communication and quantitative/symbolic reasoning, plus five (5) credits in Humanities, 15 credits in social sciences and 15 credits in natural sciences (including one lab science).  An additional 51-54 credits in core music coursework and major related electives are required.
