IAR has made agreements with several colleges and universities for the transfer of IAR credits to other programs. The number of credits available depends on the school.
Although the information here is accurate as of its publication, we urge you to contact an Admissions Representative directly to discuss the specific transfers you have in mind. Please remember that transferring credits depends on admissions decisions that are outside IAR’s purview. You should always speak with the other school directly about your chances of admission and any planned transfer of credits.
Formal articulation agreements include those with: St. John’s University, Staten Island, Queens and other New York area campuses 30 credits toward a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications. Contact: Prof. John Swan at 718-990-7611

Please Keep In Mind:
Again, these general guidelines apply only to the transfer of credits once a student is admitted to the college or university. Admissions criteria of other schools are strictly within their own purview, and your chance of admission to any school is best assessed from information that school provides. IAR does not guarantee that credits will be transferable and is not responsible for decisions of other institutions.
