The Associate in Music Direct Transfer Agreement/ Major Related Program (AM-DTA/MRP) is for students who intend to secure a bachelor’s 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. Music programs are competitive and may require a higher GPA overall, a higher GPA in a selected subset of courses or a specific minimum grade in one or more courses. 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.

Notes


Notes on Application to a University or College

  1. Admission application deadlines vary; students must meet the deadline for the university or universities to which they plan to apply for transfer admission.
  2. Certain schools may have additional “university-specific” requirements for admission to the institution that are not prerequisites specifically identified in the DTA requirements.
  3. Certain colleges and universities might have “university-specific” requirements for graduation (e.g. institutional residency requirements). Students are advised to consult their destination college or university.
