Typically, it takes 3 years or more for a transfer student to graduate in music at Thornton School. The actual time required for a student to meet all the requirements of study in his or her main subject at Thornton School after the transition to USC by another institution is influenced by three main factors: subject assets and unique assets If a course is transferable by another institution, there are two types of credits that can be purchased for this course: subject assets and/or unit assets. The assessment means that a credit is granted for a given course offered at USC. The unit credit means that the total number of units required to close the financial statements to USC is credited. Music courses at another institution may be transferred to USC for a single credit (whether indicated in a articulation agreement or as determined by a transfer credit assessment), but in virtually all cases, these courses are not deferred to the charge. For example, Thornton Does not provide technical credit for private education or music theory courses, while USC can (and often does) provide a single credit for these courses. New transfer students from Thornton School, who have taken music courses at a former university, must go to the corresponding disciplines (example.B. orchestration, musical theory). How students cut out for these exams determines the placement in the required courses.
How do I know which transfer classes should be taken in the fall? You can find articulation agreements with many California community colleges that indicate exactly what credit courses are received on the credit transfer site. Please read the entire agreement carefully. USC will respect the transfer balance on these agreements. The articulation agreements currently show credit for the NEW GE program. Students who arrive under the NEW GE program can use these resources to verify the credit-choice, GE, writing, foreign languages and equivalency of USC courses. Students who are already at USC are cordially invited to attend one of the many election courses at the USC Thornton School of Music.
