ASSOCIATE IN FINE ARTS IN MUSIC (16AB)

Students may obtain an Associate in Fine Arts in Art degree from the College of Lake County by successfully meeting college requirements and the course requirements outlined below.

 The College of Lake County is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a major statewide cooperative agreement that eases the transfer process of the completed Illinois General Education Core.

Curriculum among participating institutions. The Associate in Fine Arts degree, however, is not automatically accepted in whole for transfer at all participating IAI four-year colleges and universities in Illinois; therefore students must work with the institutions in which they intend to transfer to ensure transferability of specific courses.
