  1. All courses must be a 2.0 or higher to transfer.
  2. Transfer of studio credits are subject to faculty approval by means of a Studio Credit Evaluation. A student must demonstrate competence in technique, conceptualization, and problem solving by submitting a portfolio of work from studio courses which will be evaluated by a designated faculty, or staff person. This is not so much a quality issue, as a content issue.
  3. All students must earn at least half of their studio major at Kendall.
  4. Students should contact and visit Kendall as early in their academic career as possible.
