Notice Regarding Transferability of Credits

Transfer Credit
Students who wish to transfer to the CJC must provide an official satisfactory academic record and have earned an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher to be admitted to the CJC. The CJC accepts the following courses for transfer: MUS101; MUS201; and the English Communication, Arts and Humanities, and Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning General Studies requirements earned at any accredited institution. The CJC also accepts up to 5 Elective credits relevant to the program’s purposes earned at any accredited institution. Please note: students must have earned a grade of C or higher in all courses considered for transfer

The transferability of credits you earn at the California Jazz Conservatory is at the complete discretion of an institution to which you may seek to transfer. Acceptance of the degree you earn in Jazz Studies is also at the complete discretion of the institution to which you may seek to transfer. If the degree that you earn at this institution is not accepted at the institution to which you seek to transfer, you may be required to repeat some or all of your coursework at that institution. For this reason you should make certain that your attendance at this institution will meet your educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which you may seek to transfer after attending the CJC to determine if your degree will transfer.

The Word

“The CJC provides some of the most in depth study of jazz out there. A core curriculum of not two, but four semesters of jazz ear training and hands on jazz theoryand improvisation, culminating in transcription and analysis of the greatest jazz artists of all time. The teachers are wonderful, organized and communicate concepts in a way that clearly transforms each and every student.”
