Philadelphia, PA – Moore College of Art & Design and Cecil College have signed a new agreement that will allow students to seamlessly transfer to Moore, a historically all-women’s visual arts college, to complete their bachelor’s degrees. Representatives from Moore and Cecil College gathered Friday, November 8, to hold an official signing at Elkton Station.

Under this articulation agreement, Cecil College students earning an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) will be able to transfer into one of two Bachelor of Fine Arts programs at Moore. These include AFA degrees in Interactive and Motions Arts being accepted into Moore’s Animation and Game Arts program, while AFA degrees in Drawing and Painting as well as Ceramics and Sculpture will be accepted into the Fine Arts program.

“Moore College of Art & Design is delighted to launch a new agreement with Cecil College that creates a clear point of entry and pathway into Moore’s Bachelor of Fine Arts programs for Cecil College’s associate degree graduates,” said Moore President Cecelia Fitzgibbon. “Moore’s BFA programs are outstanding, and we look forward to welcoming Cecil College's well-qualified and highly motivated transfer students to the Moore College community.”

“Cecil College works diligently to reduce the barriers faced by students, allowing them to successfully transition to four-year colleges and universities. Partnering with Moore College of Art & Design ensures our Associate of Fine Arts students will continue to benefit from the support and high academic standards that will allow them to own their future,” said Cecil College President Dr. Mary Way Bolt.

“We want our students to be able to transfer every credit they take here at Cecil College into their four-year programs. By having this articulation agreement, the arrangements are all worked out for the students,” said Dr. Christy Dryer, vice president of academic programs.
