Transfer Admission/Credits

Admission as a transfer student requires a 3.0 grade point average from one’s previous school.

Generally, credit will be granted toward graduation for academic classes in which a student received a grade of C or better at an accredited institution. After a student has passed the audition and has been accepted to the University, the University Office of Admission evaluates the transcript and determines the University of Miami equivalents. During orientation, transfer students meet with the Assistant Dean of the Frost School of Music, who determines which transferred courses will be counted toward the desired major.

A music theory placement exam determines the appropriate level of theory. The Assistant Dean validates prior music credits. It is helpful to bring a syllabus for each music class taken at another school. Based on the jury exam at the end of the first semester, the faculty determine the level of study on the instrument or voice.
