One of the questions we're asked the most is: "Will these credits transfer?"
The short answer is "yes!"
CCA's Art & Design department has designed curriculums and degree paths to be highly transferrable. Our Art Appreciation and Art History courses are “Guaranteed Transfer Courses” and are recognized by every higher education institution in the state of Colorado. The Art and Design Foundations certificate is designed to transfer to state colleges, universities, and private institutions. We are currently finalizing agreements with Metropolitan State University of Denver, University of Colorado Denver, University of Northern Colorado, Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, and others. We are willing to tailor classes and schedules to help students transfer to their school of choice, so speak to your instructor about specific options.
Both of the Associate Degrees offer highly transferrable courses, and will be the initial step towards a bachelor's degree in an art related field.
This certificate offers students a rigorous foundation in the core areas of art and design, including drawing, creativity, design, technology, and presentation. This certificate is modeled after the first year of many art and design schools who require their students to complete a foundational curriculum before they can specialize in a specific area.
