The AFA - Art Education degree is governed and accredited by the state of Missouri and meets the mid-preparation benchmarks of the performance standards established for pre-service teachers in the state of Missouri.

Students transferring to UM-St. Louis with an AFA in Art Education must achieve a passing score on each section of the Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA) and completion of the Missouri Educator Profile (MEP). It is recommended that students begin testing for competencies early in their sophomore year. Some four-year transfer institutions may have additional requirements including higher GPA or MoGEA scores. Students are encouraged to work closely with an advisor so they may understand and prepare to meet all entrance requirements.
Students who are planning to transfer to UM-St. Louis should consult with an advisor to learn of the articulation agreement before beginning their coursework toward the STLCC AFA degree.
