OLD LYME, Conn. (AP) — The University of New Haven has agreed to absorb a small fine arts school in Old Lyme.

The Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts teaches the traditional disciplines of figurative and representational fine art.

College President Scott Colley tells The Day of New London it will remain semi-autonomous but will have financial oversight and student-recruitment help from UNH.

He says Lyme Academy College’s students also will have access to UNH’s liberal arts programs and the ability to attend classes at UNH’s campus in Tuscany, Italy.

Lyme Academy College’s 73 students will still pay $28,824 in tuition for 2014-15. UNH’s tuition is $33,330.

Diplomas from the school will now read Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts of the University of New Haven.
