Return to Transfer Degree and Career Programs Return to: Transfer Degree and Career Programs

Associate in Fine Arts Degree

Students who intend to major in music performance for the baccalaureate degree may choose to complete the Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree in music instead of the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree or the Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree. Completion of the A.F.A. degree, however, does not fulfill the requirements of the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum  . Therefore, students may also choose to complete a dual degree program, Associate in Arts (A.A.) / Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) with a concentration in Music Performance. Please consult with a music department advisor to determine the degree path that is best for you.

Since transfer admission is competitive, completion of one of the above referenced degree options does not guarantee acceptance into either a baccalaureate or upper level music program. Students may be required to demonstrate skill level through auditions and placement testing at the institution to which they transfer.
