Allowable total transfer of credit students must earn

Allowable Total Transfer of Credit Students must earn a minimum of 50 percent of the total program credits required for graduation in residency. Therefore, students may only be granted a maximum of 50 percent of the total program credits required for graduation through transfer credit earned at an outside institution, including other Art Institutes campuses. Due to regulatory considerations, at some Art Institutes schools, the minimum percentage of total program credits that must be earned in residency may vary from the standard above. Transcripts Official Transcripts must be sent to the Dean of Academic Affairs upon successful completion of the concurrent enrollment course. Transfer Credit Upon Re-Entry to the Institution: Requests for transfer of credit from accredited institutions of higher education, for a course taken while a student was not in attendance at an Art Institutes school, but after a student’s initial matriculation at the school may be made to the Dean of Academic Affairs. Transfer Credit may be awarded if all other criteria for transfer of credit are met. Grading The course(s) must be passed with a grade of “C” or better. The student’s record at an Art Institutes school will reflect a “TR” grade. The grade will not be factored into the GPA or the CGPA. CHANGE OF PROGRAM WITHIN AN ART INSTITUTES SCHOOL A student petitioning to transfer from one program to another within The Art Institute of Phoenix must obtain approval from the Department Director of the department from which the student is transferring. The student’s coursework and earned credits will be reviewed for applicability to the new program. Only those credits required for graduation in the new program will be transferred to the new program and counted toward graduation. Only one change of program is allowed per student. TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDIT TO OTHER INSTITUTIONS The Art Institute of Phoenix does not imply, promise or guarantee transferability of its credits to any other institution. In the U.S. higher education system, transferability of credit is determined by the receiving institution, taking into account such factors as course content, grading, accreditation and licensing. The goal of The Art Institute of Phoenix is to help you to prepare for entry-level employment in your chosen field of study. The value of degree programs like those offered by The Art Institute of Phoenix is their deliberate focus on marketable skills. The credits earned are not intended as a stepping stone for transfer to another institution. For this reason, it is unlikely that the academic credits you earn at The Art Institute of Phoenix will transfer to another school. Programs offered by one school within the Art Institutes system may be similar to but not identical to programs offered at another school within the system. This is due to differences imposed by state law, use

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
