Over the past two decades, HISA has hosted over 700 students from universities across the US, as well as internationally. Parallel to HISA’s vision to bridge professional artistic mentoring with individually guided study is its determination to make certain students are granted credit. Many American schools routinely have granted credit for study at HISA, accepting our transcript directly. However, to ensure that all students receive credit, HISA has established formal affiliations with two prestigious American universities. These institutions have carefully vetted HISA's syllabi and faculty and have been issuing official transcripts for study at HISA. Students and home institution study abroad offices concerned with credit transfer to their respective schools can be assured that the process by which HISA's courses were accredited was a rigorous one, applying the highest standards.
All HISA full time instructors possess either a Masters or a Ph.D. Contributing teachers and visiting artists are accomplished professionals in their fields and have submitted work for evaluation before being allowed to participate in the program. In the following link are four steps which, when completed, will ensure that all credits earned at HISA will count towards your home school degree.
Perspective students should contact their home institution’s study abroad office to ensure that they comply with the requirements for study abroad.
