Music Direct Transfer Agreement, DTA/MRP


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees & Certificates Quick View

Transfers to Central Washington, Eastern Washington, UW Seattle, Western Washington, WSU Pullman

Purpose


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. Performance requirements refers not only to performance on instrument or voice, but also mastery of theoretical concepts and piano skills often acquired through private lessons. Although this degree will be granted to SVC students completing a cumulative 2.0 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.

  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 university might have “university-specific” requirements for graduation (ex: institutional residency requirements). Students are advised to consult their destination college or university.
