The Art Department will make every effort to accept transfer credit from North Carolina Community Colleges and other accredited four-year institutions.
Visit the Office of Transfer Services to determine which courses taken at another institution will transfer to our program. The direct link is: http://ota.appstate.edu/.
Courses that do not automatically transfer as specific Art Department courses will be designated “art elective”. These are counted as pre-major courses and will not count towards any Art degree requirements at Appalachian State University. However, you may file the Transfer Credit Petition Form to have any course considered for direct substitution within the Art Department.
All prospective art majors should attend an Art Department orientation meeting or Open House for freshmen and transfer students prior to their first semester at Appalachian State University. These meetings are held in Herbert Wey Hall.
