Graduate Degree Admissions Information

Graduate Degree Transfer Credits

A maximum of 6 graduate level credits will be accepted as transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions.* An allowable transfer course must show a grade point average of “B,” 83 percent, or 3.0 or better. Transfer students are required to provide an official transcript from the accredited institution. A transcript is considered official only if it is sent directly from a college/university to Berklee Online. In order for credits to be eligible for transfer, they must align with the degree requirements.

*Special consideration is given to students who have completed college-level course work at music institutions with national accreditation. Accreditation must be given by an accrediting agency or state approval agency recognized by the US 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).
