As many as 3 credits of doctoral-level academic coursework earned in another accredited doctoral program may be evaluated for transfer toward the doctor of musical arts (D.M.A.) degree after a student has completed 12 credits at Rutgers. No undergraduate or master's-level credit may be transferred to the D.M.A. No graduate transfer credit will be accepted for courses in which the student received a grade below B. Any course for which a student requests transfer credit must be evaluated by the graduate adviser, the Graduate Oversight Committee, and the dean of Mason Gross School of the Arts. Students may be required to provide a syllabus for the course they wish to transfer. The responsibility for requesting transfer credit of graduate work lies with the student. A form for this purpose is available from the Department of Music and the Office of the Dean. The student should submit to the graduate adviser the completed form together with an official transcript of the graduate work for which credit is requested.
Students in the D.M.A. degree who have taken an equivalent course to 08:702:501 or 16:700:567, 568, may substitute an elective in lieu of a requirement to take these classes as part of the D.M.A. degree.
