Bradley students transferring into the program must have a 2.25 grade point average for at least 12 hours of coursework in order to declare a major in Animation, Game Design, or Interactive Media.
Students transferring from other institutions must have a 2.25 overall grade point average on a 4.0 scale to be admitted to a major in Interactive Media. External transfer students not having a 2.25 overall grade point average must earn a 2.25 at Bradley for at least 12 hours of coursework before declaring a major in Animation, Game Design, or Interactive Media.
Courses taken at other institutions must be evaluated by the Admissions Office and then by the Department Chair. Due to the fast pace in which technology changes, Interactive Media courses considered for required or elective transfer credit must have been completed within four years from the proposed admission date for the student.
Current Bradley students and external transfer students who meet program admission requirements and who wish to change to or add an Animation, Game Design, or Interactive Media major must first meet with an advisor or the Department Chair for an initial academic advisement session and orientation to the Department.
Applicants apply to Bradley University and indicate one of the three majors in Interactive Media as their field of study.
Students who wish to transfer from other institutions must submit a portfolio and complete a technology-based assessment so that the Department of Interactive Media can determine proper course placement. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for information regarding content, submission dates, format, and mailing address. Once completed, please contact the Department of Interactive Media to schedule the assessment.
Internal and external transfer students may need at least one extra semester to complete graduation requirements because of prerequisites and core course requirements in the majors. Students choosing to switch between majors may also need at least one extra semester to complete graduation requirements.
Due to the strong technology component of this major, all students are required to meet current Department hardware and software requirements. These requirements help ensure that majors are immersed in current technologies and become fluent in standards required to be successful in Interactive Media.
