Associate in Fine Arts
To transfer as a junior into a B.F.A. program with a major in Art, students should follow the requirements described below in consultation with an art department advisor. Completion of the A.F.A. degree, however, does not fulfill the requirements of the IAI General Education Core Curriculum, nor does it fulfill the requirements for the A.A. or the A.S. degree. Therefore, students will need to fulfill the general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer.
Transfer admission is competitive at many four year schools. Completion of the A.F.A. alone does not guarantee admission to the baccalaureate program or to upper-division or specialty art courses. Students may be required to demonstrate skill level through a portfolio review at the institution to which they transfer for admission to a B.F.A. program, for registration in advanced studio courses, and/or for scholarship consideration. Some colleges and universities may require competency in a foreign language.
A minimum of 64 semester hours are required for the Associate in Fine Arts Degree (Fine Arts Emphasis). Please see the catalog for degree requirements.
