3 OVERVIEW OF TRANSFERRING CREDITS: POLICIES & REQUIREMENTS GENERAL POLICIES Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) provides transfer credit services for prospective and enrolled students. If you are seeking to transfer credit into (LACM), please make sure of the following: The (domestic) college or university you attended must be an official regionally accredited institution* International transcripts must be submitted to a certified credential evaluation service Each course must have a grade of C (70% or 2.0) or higher (Please note that once the course is accepted it only transfers as earned credit(s) and the grade from the previous institution is not counted in your LACM GPA) *Accredited by an accrediting agency or state approval agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a "reliable authority as to the quality of postsecondary education" within the meaning of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). LACM offers transfer credit approval services for students who are accepted to a Bachelor Degree Program or for currently enrolled students looking to enroll in a Bachelor Degree Program. We do not offer a pre-approval service for transfer credit for prospective students; however, prospective students may speak with the Office of Admissions to find out more information regarding transferability of credit Current students however, may seek a pre-approval of transfer credit before taking a course outside of LACM, so that the course is pre-approved for transfer o o Current Students will need to submit a course description from the college/university s official course manual to the Office of Academic Advising; the assigned Academic Advisor will pass along the information to the Transfer Credit Evaluator. Further information on getting a course pre-approved for transfer is provided in the Transfer Credit Process section below Following all transfer credit evaluations, students will receive a Transfer Credit Tracking Sheet indicating which courses transferred. Calendar Systems LACM operates under a quarter-hour system. When transferring credit from a college or university using a different system, the following conversions must be made: Quarter-Hour Systems 2 quarter-hour credits outside of LACM equal 2 quarter-hour credits at LACM 3 semester-hour credits outside of LACM equal 3 quarter-hour credits at LACM Semester-Hour Systems 2 semester-hour credits outside of LACM equal 3 quarter-hour credits at LACM 3 semester-hour credits outside of LACM equal 4.5 quarter-hour credits at LACM Contact Information Prospective or entering students may contact the Office of Admissions at or Continuing and Re-Admitted students may contact the Office of Academic Advising at or at Page 2

4 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS LACM College of Music values the college-level course work taken by students at other institutions of higher education throughout the world. Students are invited to submit official transcripts from regionally accredited institutions for a transfer credit evaluation. A transcript is considered official only if it is sent directly from a college/university to LACM or is given, to either the Office of Admissions or the Office of Academic Advising, in a sealed and stamped envelope and delivered unopened to LACM. Transcripts that have been opened or faxed are not considered official, and therefore, are not acceptable for transfer credit. Grade reports are also not accepted for transfer credit. International Transcripts Transcripts from all international institutions require an official translation to English and evaluation to American college standards by a certified credential evaluation service. The official translation must be mailed directly from the official translation service, or delivered in a sealed envelope to the Office of Admissions (Prospective and Entering students), or to the Office of the Academic Advising (Continuing and Re-Admitted students). LACM recommends the following provider of translation and evaluation services: Education Credential Evaluators, Inc. PO Box Milwaukee, WI USA Important Note: This translation is required for all international transcripts, with the exception of English speaking countries. Be sure to remind any translation service that the translated transcript must include course names, the course credit values, and grades. REQUIRED GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES There are a number of general education requirements in the LACM Bachelor Degree Program. To have a course general education course transferred and equated as one of these required courses, the course descriptions must be generally comparable. In some cases, LACM may request that you provide an official course description from your previous institution s course manual or directly from the previous institution s official website to determine comparability. Page 3

5 TRANSFER CREDIT LIMITATIONS BACHELOR DEGREE PROGRAM LIMITATIONS LACM will accept a maximum of 60 quarter-hour credits or 100% of general education credits required in any bachelor degree program. Bachelor Degree Program candidates will also be eligible to proficiency credit for Ear Training & Theory (1-4) as well as Piano (1-4). An examination is required and will be administered during New Student Orientation. ASSOCIATE DEGREE AND DIPLOMA PROGRAM LIMITATIONS LACM does not accept transfer credit for Associate Degree and Diploma programs as these programs do not have general education requirements within the curriculum. Associate Degree and Diploma Program candidates will, however, be eligible to proficiency credit for Ear Training & Theory (1-4) as well as Piano (1-4). An examination is required and will be administered during New Student Orientation. POST MATRICULATION TRANSFER CREDIT It is expected that students attending LACM will take all their remaining courses required to graduate at LACM. The college recognizes, however, that special study opportunities may arise after students matriculate. LACM will therefore accept additional courses of any kind post matriculation for general education transfer credit. Students are encouraged to attain pre-approval transfer status from their Academic Advisor before enrolling at another institution. MINIMUM GRADE Courses must be successfully completed with a minimum grade of C (70 percent or 2.0) in order to be considered for transfer. Students from schools that rely on teacher evaluations rather than a grading system may still have courses accepted at LACM if the evaluations meet transfer standards. Page 4
