Lifetime Alumni Benefits
Once a student finishes the 13 required courses for certification, they receive Lifetime Alumni Status. This means that students may retake any course within the Commercial Illustration Program and the Graphic Novel & Comix Program for free, for the rest of their lives, if they wish to reinforce their skills. On top of this, graduates from the Commercial Illustration Program may take any course up to full certification in either the Photography Certificate Program or the Communication Arts Program (graphic design and advertising art direction) at a 50% discount. Graduates from the Commercial Illustration Program may also take any course in the Digital Media Program for free (production software courses including the Adobe Creative Suite) so that students can upgrade their skills as new versions of software emerge.
