Art Institute Transfer Students

The abrupt closure of Art Institute campuses across the country has displaced many of their students. Academy of Art University has created options to support these Art Institute students.
 
If you’re in this situation, we are here to help you continue pursuing your educational goals in similar fields of study.
 
We have created two options to support you: the Teach-Out Agreement and the Transfer Articulation Agreement.

Transfer Articulation Agreement

If you don’t qualify for the Teach-Out Agreement, we offer the Transfer Articulation Agreement. Art Institute transfer students can transfer up to 75% of the degree equivalent offered at Academy of Art University. We check transfer credits by transcript review and portfolio submission. We use that to determine skill levels and placement. You also have the option of exploring majors that better align with your career goals.
