BFA

How to apply to the BFA programs

Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA ) Requirements:
This degree is for those with exceptional abilities in art and design. In order to apply to the BFA, students must first meet the core class requirements (consult with your academic advisor for details) in the Art & Design Department and submit a portfolio for departmental BFA review. Students desiring to participate in the review should check the application links listed below. Portfolios are typically due around march in Spring Semester. Acceptance into the BFA is based on the portfolio review, overall GPA of 2.0 or above with 3.0 GPA or above in ART and ARTH courses. Courses within the student's area of emphasis must be completed with a C grade or above. For graduation with a BFA degree, students must maintain the grade requirements listed above and receive a B grade or above for ART 499R BFA Project. For more information, contact the Academic Advisors. Those not accepted into the program may apply up to 2 additional times for admission. A review is held in the fall for students who were not accepted in the spring. Students not accepted into the BFA program, or who are unable to fulfill the above requirements, may still pursue the more general BA/BS degrees.
