For BFA Students:
Advising is provided individually and in groups to full-time, matriculated students enrolled in Tyler School of Art. Additionally, the Wednesday 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. First-year students are advised by the academic coordinator and are automatically registered by the Tyler Office of Registration and Records. Studio advising is provided in the second year by sophomore studio advisors as assigned in each area. Major advising is by studio advisors in the student's area with academic advising provided by the academic coordinator.
Freshmen are automatically scheduled for both their fall and spring semester studio classes. Midway through their second semester, freshmen are advised both individually and in groups by the academic coordinator and designated assistants on policies, methods, and procedures to assist them in self-registration for their first sophomore semester.
Sophomores also meet with the academic coordinator and selected advisors who will help them register for their second sophomore semester. 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.
Juniors, seniors, and all transfer students should continue to consult the academic coordinator for advising and course requirements.
Additional Advising Services
The academic coordinator should be contacted if there are questions concerning courses that require placement testing. The coordinator meets with all students on academic probation or designated "at-risk" by virtue of multiple mid-term deficiency notices and is responsible for specific adjustments due students with disabilities. Although the coordinator has scheduled hours, we suggest calling 215-777-9193 for an appointment.
For Architecture, Art & Art Education, and Art History Students:
Advising is provided to matriculated students enrolled in the Architecture, Art & Art Education, and Art History programs on the Main Campus by the director of Academic Services 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. Major advising is by advisors in the student's area with academic advising provided by the academic advisor. The director of Academic Services meets with undeclared students who are interested in various Tyler majors.
The academic advisor should be contacted if there are questions concerning English 0802 (Analytical Reading & Writing), Mosaics (Intellectual Heritage 0851 & 0852), and other General Education (for new freshmen) or Core curriculum (for new transfer students) requirements, or developmental courses in English and Mathematics. The advisor meets with all students on academic probation or designated "at-risk" by virtue of multiple mid-term deficiency notices; is responsible for specific adjustments due students with disabilities; and is available by appointment to students with problems impacting on their academic and collegiate progress.
The Senior Associate Dean of Tyler is available for advising that cannot be handled through normal channels or to help with special problems.
