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:
*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.
