Transfer Students

Please review RIT's transfer student information to learn more about joining RIT. Below, we post specific information about IGM's academic programs  Please note that at this time the School of Interactive Games and Media does not offer part-time or online coursework for our degree programs.

Transfer admission to IGM's undergraduate degree programs (Game Design and Development and New Media Interactive Development) is available to students according to the following requirements:

  • Completed a year or more of study at a regionally accredited institution of higher education.
  • Minimum grade point average of 3.0 (specifically in math, science, and other technical coursework).
  • Enrolled in or completed an AS or BS degree program in Computer Science, Information Technology, or a related computing degree with courses in programming, computer applications, math, science, and liberal arts.

We look closely at programming and math courses and grades. If possible, please include an online portfolio, which includes examples of your work (e.g., websites, programs, source code samples, and design/animation examples).  Acceptance as a transfer student to one of our undergraduate programs is currently competitive due to the limited seat availability.
