Transfer Students

Prospective transfer students should contact their current college advising office to see if they have a transfer guide which details the appropriate course sequence for the current institution. The CMU School of Music has articulation agreements with many Michigan community colleges (see CMU Transfer Students Equivalency Page)

Transfer students must attend one of the Transfer Orientation sessions and attend the meeting for students wishing to major or minor in music during summer orientation. At that time, students will be given a list of music courses for the upcoming semester as well as a semester-by-semester outline (or degree map) of the degree he/she is interested in pursuing.

During a transfer student's first semester at CMU, an appointment should be scheduled in the School of Music Office to meet with the Undergraduate Advisor. In this meeting, students review remaining course requirements, confirm the disposition of transfer credits, and discuss degree choices.
