Students wishing to transfer into the B.M.Ed. program go through the same Application Procedure as high school applicants with the addition of submitting an official college transcript from all institutions attended.*
As VanderCook is committed to the success of each and every student, the dean's office will prepare and provide a detailed, individualized course plan for each transfer student once they're accepted. This course plan allows transfer students to see what classes have transferred in as well as what coursework is outstanding. Outstanding coursework is plotted out by semester so that a student knows, before they ever begin classes, when they'll complete the program.
Here is an example of what VanderCook College of Music prepares for transfer students:
VanderCook College of Music is working with local community colleges to draft Articulation Agreements and Transfer Guides to ease students' transition. If you want to earn an Associates degree and then transfer to VanderCook, begin planning early and email us so we can help you choose classes that will transfer the best. Review the following Transfer Guides to assist in your planning.
*In some cases, transfer students may have to take and pass the Illinois State Board of Education's Test of Academic Proficiency prior to being considered for acceptance.
