Credit Transfer Agreements

Berklee has instituted a number of curriculum transfer agreements with other institutions. Students who attend one of these institutions, complete the agreed-upon curriculum, and earn satisfactory grades* will be eligible to receive transfer credit at Berklee. The courses vary for each institution. Check with the appropriate department at your home institution for more detail.

Please note that transferring credit to Berklee occurs only after you are accepted and enrolled at Berklee. All transfer students, including those at institutions with whom Berklee has a curriculum transfer agreement, must apply to Berklee through the regular admissions process. Once you are accepted to Berklee, a special transfer counselor will help set up your program of study.
