Summer Intersession Courses

Summer Intersession is offered as part of our regular academic curriculum. B.F.A. students may enroll for no more than six credit hours per session. Enrollment is completed through web registration on your MyKCAI portal. Students hoping to transfer credits earned at KCAI to other institutions should consult with their academic advisors at those institutions for approval.
