Hospitality and Tourism Management

Hospitality Management classes are not listed because they transfer only into the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Tourism Management. All hospitality management course work and experience will be evaluated individually by the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.

Performing Arts

Music courses for music majors will be individually evaluated by the Music Conservatory.

A maximum of 10 s.h. of Dance can be applied to a Theatre degree.

For all other degrees, Dance is treated as physical education which has no transferable credit.
