Antioch University Santa Barbara and Brooks Institute signed a Teach-Out Agreement this week that will enable Brooks students to transfer to Antioch as the visual and media arts school closes its doors permanently.
Brooks Institute announced earlier in August that it would be shutting down in October, and since that time, officials at AUSB, led by Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor Dr. William Flores, have been working to come to an agreement to allow Brooks students to transfer to Antioch to finish their degrees.
“This agreement will allow students from Brooks Institute to continue their studies without interruption and without having to move from the area,” Dr. Flores said. “We have agreed to accept their credits and assist them to graduate and pursue their career goals. Hopefully, we’ll be able to welcome many Brooks students to our campus to complete their studies.”
Once the agreement is approved by the Higher Learning Commission, Brooks students can begin the process of working with AUSB’s Admissions team to transfer their units to complete their degree. Students transferring to AUSB could resume their studies in the Fall Quarter beginning in October.
The agreement also allows Brooks students to transfer to AUSB’s sister campus Antioch University Los Angeles, located in Culver City.
