Associate in Music - Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA/MRP)

The Associate in Music is designed for persons interested in transferring to a four-year college or university music program. Students who successfully complete degree requirements and elective courses recommended for music will be able to transfer to most four-year degree programs with junior standing. Important: Completion of the Associate in Music does not guarantee admission into a four-year degree program, only that the credits will transfer if and when one is admitted into the music program at a participating institution. It is imperative that students make early contact with their potential transfer institutions about specific requirements for overall GPA, possible higher GPA requirements in a selected subset of courses, audition requirements, theory/ear training diagnostic exams, and piano proficiency exams.
