Admission to the Department of Art & Design is a two-part application process. Students must submit:

  • A digital portfolio for the Department Review Process (see step #2 here)
  • The Common Application to the University
  • Deadline to apply is January 15.
  • Once a student is accepted to the Department and the University he/she is admitted as a BA Art Major.

Upon successful completion of the two-year core program, a student may choose to pursue the BA Art degree, the BFA in Fine Arts (FA) or  BFA in Visual Communications (VC).

All three degree programs require a portfolio review and completion of the two-year core credit requirements or approved equivalents from another program. FA and VC majors are required to receive a grade of C- (2.66 GPA in art courses) or better in all art courses to continue in the degree path.

  • Artistic talent, which is determined by the ranking from the Department Portfolio Review Committee

  • Financial need, as determined by the FAFSA process

All undergraduate financial aid and scholarship programs are managed and decided by the Office of Student Financial Services.
