Formal application is made to the art program for acceptance into the B.F.A. in Studio Art degree program. Application must be submitted at least three semesters prior to the applicant's anticipated graduation. Favorable faculty review of the application materials are required before a student is declared a candidate for the B.F.A. in Studio Art degree. Applicants must have achieved the following at the time of application to the B.F.A. in Studio Art:
· C or better in all major classes
· 3.25 GPA or above within major classes
· 3.00 or above overall UW total institutional GPA
Undergraduate majors proceed with meeting the USP requirements for the B.A. in Studio Art and balance foundation, art history, and studio core requirements in the major until formally accepted as a B.F.A. in Studio Art candidate. Application does not automatically guarantee acceptance into the B.F.A. in Studio Art program.
Majors in the process of completing the fourth semester of their Foundations and Studio Core course work (16-19 hours) , including portfolio review, submit application materials to the department. Students transferring to the Department of Visual and Literary Arts who have completed their foundation core and successfully passed portfolio review are eligible to apply for a B.F.A. in Studio Art after one semester in Art and Art History Program.
