All visual arts majors who have passed the portfolio review are advised first by the Undergraduate Program Director for Visual Arts. Majors who have not yet passed the review are advised by the Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising.

  • A Visual Arts Advising Form is completed and the on-line degree audit is reviewed at the first advising session; these show the Visual Arts requirements and University requirements for graduation.
  • Advising forms are updated at every advising session, showing progress toward the degree.
  • After earning 30 – 60 credits, students are assigned to a faculty advisor who teaches in their selected concentration.
  • Advisors are assigned in early November and early April, and the assignments are emailed to students and posted in Fine Arts, room108.
  • Advisors will discuss a student’s proposed course schedule and can provide information about internships, independent study, study abroad opportunities and academic progress.
  • All other academic advising information is available at the Office for Academic and Pre-Professional Advising.
