For BFA Students:
Advising is provided individually and in groups to full-time, degree-seeking students enrolled in Tyler School of Art. While students may make appointments at any time, the week before the start of registration is set aside each semester for advising purposes, at which time students receive their DARS and meet with an advisor. Advising about academic requirements is always provided by the academic advisors.
First-year students are advised by the advising staff and the faculty while taking FDPR 1502 and are registered for their studio courses. Foundation courses are rostered by the advising staff but students will select their own academic classes. Midway through their second semester, freshmen are advised both individually and in groups by the advising staff on policies, methods, and procedures to assist them in self-registration for their first sophomore semester.
It is critical to note that all majors have either one or two sophomore prerequisites. Students who are thinking about overseas study should consult an advisor before the beginning of the sophomore year.
Sophomores should arrange to meet with the academic advisors who will help them register for their second sophomore semester. Faculty advisors are also available for sophomore students who have questions about the majors. When sophomores register for their junior year they are assigned to a major advisor, a faculty member from the major they enter, who will continue to advise the student during his/her junior and senior years on studio matters. Faculty advisors are also available for sophomore students who have questions about the majors.
Juniors, seniors, and all transfer students should continue to consult the academic advisors for course requirements.
The Art Education staff provides additional advising for B.F.A. students seeking the Art Education concentration as there are a number of clearances and special requirements for that program, as required by the PA Department of Education.
Additional Advising Services
The academic advising office should be contacted if there are questions concerning courses that require placement testing. The senior academic advisor meets with all students on academic warning, academic probation or designated "at-risk" by virtue of multiple mid-term deficiency notices and works with students with disabilities to ensure appropriate accommodations are made. Although the senior advisor has scheduled hours, we suggest calling 215-777-9193 for an appointment.
For Architecture, Art, Art Education, Art History and Visual Studies Students:
Advising is provided to degree-seeking students enrolled in the Architecture, Visual Studies, Art, Art Education, Arts in Community and Art History programs by the academic advising staff and the major undergraduate advisors in the departments.
The week before the start of registration is set aside each semester for advising purposes, at which time students can obtain their DARS report and meet with an advisor. Faculty advisors in the student's area provide advising to most juniors and seniors for their major and academic advising is provided by the academic advisors.
The Art Education staff provides additional advising for students in the B.S. in Art Education and B.F.A. with Art Education Concentration, as there are a number of clearances and special requirements for that program, as required by the PA Department of Education.
An academic advisor should be contacted if there are questions concerning English 0802 (Analytical Reading & Writing), Intellectual Heritage 0851 & 0852 (Mosaic: Humanities Seminar I and Mosaic: Humanities Seminar II), and other General Education (GenEd) requirements, or developmental courses in English and Mathematics.
