Schreiner University has become the first school in Texas to reach an agreement to accept all class credits for students wishing to transfer from the Art Institute of America (AIA), which is closing its campuses in San Antonio, Austin, and Houston. According to Wilbert Lleses, Assistant Vice President of Enrollment, Schreiner University approached this situation with a “heart to help” the estimated 670 students who are being affected. According to a press release, the private university announced its shutdown in October.
The university is offering a pre-award $16,000 scholarship for all AIA transfer students that end up attending Schreiner University. Application fees and essay requirements will also be waived. According to Dr. Charlie McCormick, President, Schreiner University is committed to providing an academic pathway for these and all transfer students.
Any student affected by the AIA closure is encouraged to contact Admissions at Schreiner University by visiting schreiner.edu/admissions, or calling (830) 792-7217.
