HOW IT WORKS

The program includes 45 quarter hours which will transfer as 30 semester credit hours. The hours are credited toward an independent major. Prior to attending the Art Institute, students will complete a total of 12 credit hours in visual communications at Geneva. 

Qualified students will have completed two years, 58-64 credits at Geneva and must have a GPA of 2.5 or better. They must have received approval from their Department Chairperson and Academic Advisor. Following the completion of the Junior Year option, the student will return to Geneva for completion of senior year and graduation requirements. 

Students completing 30 credits through the affiliate program may be given credit for a minor or a concentration depending on the student’s major. Students should discuss this option with their Academic Advisor.
