Graduate students at Peabody may transfer a maximum of six credits of graduate study completed at other accredited institutions, pending the review and approval of department chairs and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. All credits transferred to a graduate degree or diploma program must have been earned within five years prior to the student’s first graduate degree registration at Peabody. Only credits that have not been earned in fulfillment of a previous degree may be transferred.

Peabody alumni who are continuing to subsequent programs of study may transfer up to three credits of core coursework (e.g., Music Bibliography or seminars in music theory and musicology) completed during earlier programs at Peabody with the permission of the Office of Academic Affairs. Up to six additional transfer credits may also be accepted but only for elective credit.
