Visiting our Undergraduate Programs
There are a variety of ways prospective students can visit the Department of Art and Art History. Your experiences with our admissions team can range from a group presentation at a University-wide open house event, to an individualized itinerary to shadow a current student. We encourage you to review the options below before planning your visit to campus.
Information sessions are held on most Mondays and Fridays to provide a prospective freshmen and transfer students with a general introduction to the department. Information sessions are held in the afternoon so they can be paired with a morning university tour and information session from the Office of Admissions. Learn more about College of Fine Arts Information Sessions.
Department admissions events range from University-wide open house events sponsored by the Office of Admissions, to one-on-one interactions with our faculty to gain portfolio feedback. View our upcoming admissions events.
Individual appointments for prospective freshmen and transfer students may be scheduled Monday-Friday. Depending on the availability of our faculty and student ambassadors, individual appointments may include the opportunity to sit-in on a class, gain portfolio feedback, or a tour of the department. Individual appointments are intended to help you explore our programs in an in-depth way, but do not factor into the admission decision process. To inquire about an individual appointment, contact:
Diana Mendoza, Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions
