TRANSFER GUIDE

Curriculum:  Photography, Brooks Institute of Photography
             Transfer Program for LCC-AAS Degree 0277
Curriculum Code: 0648                                                           

This transfer guide supports the Articulation (partnership) Agreement between 
Lansing Community College (LCC) and Brooks Institute of Photography (BIP), 
which facilitate the transfer of students graduating from LCC into the ninth 
session of the Bachelor of Arts Degree-Program in Photography at BIP. This 
articulated agreement does not have a specified expiration date. 

The conditions and stipulations of the agreement are listed below.

1.  Students must graduate from the Lansing Community College photography 
    program with an associate degree in photography (Photographic Imaging).
2.  The student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0
3.  Student must present an acceptable portfolio.
4.  Lansing Community College students must have proven competency and 
    knowledge of the 4x5 view camera.  This competency will be judged via
    review of their college transcript of courses successfully completed
    and a portfolio review of their 4x5 camera images.
5.  Since most students will be lacking some of the general education and 
    business curriculum requirements, interested applicants are encouraged
    to take appropriate courses at Lansing Community College or another 
    accredited educational institution before arriving.
6.  Students following this LCC/Brooks Institute Articulation Agreement 
    will start in the Upper Division unless they choose to take classes in 
    the Lower Division that cover material they have not previously studied.
7.  Although BIP will transfer credits from the science class taken to 
    fulfill the associate degree, it is strongly recommended that the choice
    of this science class include one that teaches the physics of light and 
    optics (PHYS 222).
8.  LCC students who have taken course work applicable to Upper Division 
    courses at BIP will have a Brooks Institute of Photography faculty member
    determine the applicability of those courses to the BIP major
    requirements. However, it is expected that all incoming students from LCC
    will spend a minimum of 10 (eight week) sessions in residence at BIP as
    full-time enrolled students. The courses taken in residence must include
    those that meet the major requirements, and other general education and
    business classes to meet the graduation requirements.
9.  Students wishing to graduate as a BIP Digital Media major, a course of 
    study that encompasses still photography, film and video, and digital 
    imaging, may have to extend their stay up to two sessions to meet 
    graduation requirements.
10. Students seeking an LCC associate degree must fulfill specific graduation
    requirements. See the LCC Catalog for details.
