The College is also a member of the Council for Higher Education in Music, which regulates transfer of music credits between two-year and four-year schools. Any music student who completes approved courses, such as Music Theory and Musicianship I-IV, can transfer these credits to any four-year institution that is also a member. Students may take applied music courses at Harford Community College in any instrument not currently offered and apply those credits towards an associate's degree at Cecil College.
