New transfer option makes four-year art school degree more attainable

Graphic Design and Print Production students at Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) now have another way to apply their Associates Degree credits toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Degree.

RRCC and Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) have updated their articulation agreement and will now allow students receiving their AAS (Associate of Applied Science) in both of those disciplines to transfer up to 60 credits toward a BFA in Graphic Design.

Jim Reiman, Chair of Graphic Design Photography at RMCAD, spoke about the change.

“Red Rocks Community College is a fantastic partner with us here at RMCAD,” he said. “We are so excited to see how this articulation agreement will help interested RRCC students transition into our RMCAD Graphic Design community.”

Dorothy Welty, RRCC Dean of Instruction, said the school is excited to add another option for students to pursue for their Graphic Design BFA through RMCAD.

“We have had a proud tradition of preparing our AAS graduates for employment in their specific occupation from industry experts,” she said.

Students with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA), C, or better in liberal arts classes, and a B or better in studio arts classes, will now be guaranteed transfer admission to RMCAD.

Red Rocks Community College’s Visual Audio and Media Arts Department (VAMA) presents a range of certificates and degrees in Graphic Design, Photography, Video Productions and Journalism.
