RRCC Updates Articulation Agreement with RMCAD to include Graphic Design and Print Production AAS
Agreement Allows for a Seamless Transition to a BFA
LAKEWOOD, CO - On May 21st 2021, Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) and Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD) updated their articulation agreement and will now allow students receiving their Graphic Design and Print Production AAS to effortlessly transfer up to 60 credits and continue their education towards their Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Graphic Design at RMCAD. “Red Rocks Community College is a fantastic partner with us here at RMCAD. We are so excited to see how this articulation agreement will help interested RRCC students transition into our RMCAD Graphic Design community." says Jim Reiman, the Chair of Graphic Design and the Chair of Photography at RMCAD. Students with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA), C, or better in liberal arts classes, and a B or better in studio arts classes will now be guaranteed transfer admission to RMCAD.
“I am excited that we amended the agreement and will allow even more students the opportunity to receive the Bachelor of Fine Arts by attending RRCC first, and then seamlessly transferring their AAS in Graphic Design and Print Production to RMCAD,” says Paul Weinrauch, Department Chair of Visual, Audio, and Media Arts at RRCC. "This new opportunity and partnership is another way more students can maximize their resources and achieve educational goals if they want to further their education." 
Dorothy Welty, the Dean of Instruction who oversees the Department of Visual, Audio, and Media Arts at RRCC adds, “We have had a proud tradition of preparing our AAS graduates for employment in their specific occupation from industry experts. We are excited to add another option for students to continue on, for their Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design with RMCAD.”
