Completion of the Multimedia area of study prepares the student planning transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. Students intending transfer to related programs are strongly advised to develop and maintain a creative portfolio, which partly determines acceptance and placement at most senior colleges and universities.

Students enrolled in the Associate in Arts degree program must meet with their assigned academic advisor to plan a specific course schedule meeting Illinois Central College and personal requirements in addition to requirements for the institution to which transfer is intended.
