AICAD Exchange

The AICAD exchange program is a semester-long exchange program where students can earn KCAI course credit while attending a different AICAD school. Students continue to pay tuition to KCAI and may use KCAI financial aid and scholarships, though host school’s fees may apply.

As a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD), KCAI offers you the unique opportunity to attend another AICAD school for one semester at no additional cost or loss of credit through the AICAD Exchange program. By sharing resources and facilities, AICAD Exchange offers students the experience and benefit of studying at a different school and living in a different geographic area. There are approximately 35 AICAD colleges within the U.S. and Canada offering unparalleled educational opportunities to students at AICAD schools.
