Transfer Policies

Students transferring to the College of Fine Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences from other colleges of the University or from other institutions may expect recognition of previously completed college level courses that are applicable to the degree requirements of the college. Courses of a professional nature that are not relevant to the academic orientation of the student’s major program may not be credited to the minimum degree requirement of 120 credits, and, regardless of any previous recognition by the Office of Admissions or by other colleges of the University, they may not be credited to degree requirements in the College of Fine Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. Students wishing to transfer to Bachelor of Music programs are required to demonstrate their vocal or instrumental ability during an audition before the music faculty and are required to complete placement testing in music theory.
