Transcript evaluations and tours of art studios are on tap at California University of Pennsylvania.
California University of Pennsylvania is introducing itself to students from the shuttered Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
Art Institute Transfer Day will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday, April 5, at Cal U.
Faculty from Cal U’s art, graphic design, digital media technology, and tourism, hospitality and event management programs will meet with students to discuss program options. Students who have art portfolios are encouraged to bring them along.
Transfer Office staff will evaluate students’ transcripts and assist with applications, waiving the $35 application fee for anyone who applies in person.
Visitors also can tour Cal U’s art facilities and meet with staff to discuss financial aid, leadership opportunities, and campus life for transfer students and commuters.
They are welcome to stop at Manderino Library, where Strand: Interpretations of the Necklace, an exhibition by the Allegheny Metals Collective, is on display.
Cal U offers more than 500 courses equivalent to those at the Art Institute and transferable within the curriculum. Transfer students who study on Cal U’s campus are eligible for scholarships of up to $3,000 per year.
“Students who visit on Transfer Day can customize the experience based on their interests and needs,” says Ryan James, transfer office director. “Cal U’s creative community is strong and supportive. Art students will find great programs and a warm welcome here.”
Registration for the Art Institute Transfer Day is available online. Walk-ins are welcome. For more information, call the Cal U Admissions Office at 724-938-4404.
