Transcripts from regionally accredited colleges or universities are evaluated by the Art Academy Department Chairs. Only grades of “C” or higher, from courses that are applicable to the Art Academy's curriculum, are transferable. The maximum amount of transfer credit to be transferred will be determined by the Chairs on an individual basis.
Transcripts from other collegiate institutions not holding regional accreditation yet recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education will be evaluated by Department Chairs on a case-by-case basis. Transfer credit may or may not be granted based on the institution's collegiate standing and the individual course content of each course credit earned. Likewise, a grade of "C" or higher is required in each course.
The Art Academy reserves the right to decline credits that are more than 10 years old, unless a degree has been awarded. Transfer credits can not be evaluated until a final official transcript has been received.
The deadline to apply for admission as a transfer student for the Fall 2018 semester is June 30, 2018. Arrange to have your transcript sent from your former institution directly to the AAC Admissions Office, and otherwise follow the basic steps for undergraduate application. If you have questions, call the Admissions Office at (513) 562-8740 and we’ll be happy to help you.
