Herb Alpert Music Center

Direct Pathway to University of California Los Angeles' Herb Alpert School of Music

The Herb Alpert Music Academy has created this track in partnership with The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to best prepare students for transfer to their program following completion of Applied Music at LACC. We encourage students with the goal of transferring to UCLA to take these courses in the recommended order.

The program requires students to take between 71 to 73 units. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that students take Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) courses in secondary semesters, as listed below. Click here for the complete list of IGETC General Education Courses.

Students who feel they need additional support in order to be successful in English and Math should see a counselor for information about support courses, tutoring services, and boot camps.
