Transfer admission requirements:

To complete an undergraduate degree in four years, it is recommended that community college transfer students complete the foundational core and pre-art requirements. There is no portfolio review process for admission to the School of Art. If a transfer student has completed a course equivalent to either ART 204 Photography II: Black & White or ART 205 Photography II: Color, they may submit a portfolio in their first semester at ASU to continue in the degree program.

Direct transfer of courses from other accredited institutions to the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts are subject to the existence of parallel and equal courses in the college's curriculum and subject to departmental or school evaluation of studio courses with respect to performance standards.

Every candidate for the bachelor's degree must earn a minimum of 30 credit hours in resident credit at ASU. Transfer students enrolled in the college must complete a minimum of 15 credit hours of resident credit in the major as approved by the faculty.
