Mobility and Study Abroad Program

MOBILITY AND STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS Mobility and study abroad programs are options available during a student’s third year of enrollment at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Each program has its own guidelines, procedures, and financial expectations. The application deadlines for these programs are April 1 for the Fall semester and November 1 for the Spring semester. AICAD MOBILITY PROGRAM The Art Academy of Cincinnati is a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design. AICAD is a consortium of 41 leading art schools in the United States and Canada. In addition, three international affiliates are in Israel, Ireland and Japan. The AICAD mobility program provides the opportunity for juniors to participate in a one-semester program of study at other AICAD member institutions. Credits earned are transferred to the Art Academy. At the end of the mobility semester, a transcript from the AICAD institution must be sent to the Art Academy’s Registrar. Contact the Registrar at or 513562-8749 for transcript procedures. Contact the Academic Dean for information on the application process.
