Transfer

Students

We’ll help make your transition to a better future as easy as possible.

Not every RMCAD student begins art and design school straight out of high school. In fact, about one-third of our students come to us with some college experience. If you’re considering transferring, we want to make that transition a positive and smooth one. 

TRANSFER CHECK LIST

  • Request copies of your official college transcript
  • Schedule an appointment with an Admissions Counselor
  • Complete a RMCAD application
  • Apply for available scholarships and financial aid
  • Submit your portfolio for review by our knowledgeable staff

TRANSFERRING COLLEGE CREDITS TO RMCAD

Figuring out which classes will transfer can be tricky, which is why having a transcript evaluation is so important. Click here to submit your transcripts for evaluation by one of our Admissions Counselors. 

FINANCIAL AID + SCHOLARSHIPS

From working with the Registrar to evaluate your previous transcripts, to discussing your financial aid and scholarship options, they’re here to help you every step of the way. 

ANTIQUITY POLICY

There are no antiquity limitations on courses that are deemed equivalent to lower division (1000/2000 level) RMCAD art and design courses. Digital media and other computer- or technology-based courses are considered for transfer provided they were completed within the last two years.

ASSOCIATES OF ARTS DEGREE TRANSFERS

Students who have received an Associate of Arts degree from a regionally-accredited college or university in the US will automatically receive credit for all liberal arts requirements except for AH1010 Art + Design History I, AH1020 Art + Design History II, and AH2010 History of Art + Design in the Non-Western World.
