The Department of Music welcomes transfer students who have been accepted to Pepperdine University and the music program at Seaver College. Content and units vary among music programs, and courses completed at another college or university must be evaluated and approved before any transferred units can be credited to the music major or minor program.

Transfer Students must apply to both Seaver College (via the Common Application) and the Music Department (via the Slideroom Application, see link below).

Students must apply to both Seaver College and the Music Department by October 15
of the Fall before their requested Spring admission. (For example, a Spring 2015 transfer must apply by October, 2014)

Students must also audition and submit all supplemental materials by this date as well.

After being accepted to Pepperdine University and into the Seaver College music program, each transfer student declaring a music major or minor must provide the following materials for potential transfer of units:

Additionally, all transfer students are required to take the Music Theory Placement Exam during their audition or during New Student Orientation. This exam does not weigh into the application process for the program. Click here for more information about this assessment.

Send additional materials (that cannot be submitted via Slideroom) to:
