Senior Entry B.F.A. Review

The B.F.A. is a four-year degree divided into two parts: the pre-professional program (freshman and sophomore years) and the professional program (junior and senior years). Majors become part of the professional program after completing their second-year review. In order to proceed into Senior Experience coursework (Art 490 B.F.A. Art/Design Studio and Art 495 B.F.A. Senior Thesis), those in the professional program must apply for the Senior Entry B.F.A. Review.

Applications for this review will be open each semester; it is an applicant’s responsibility to take note of these deadlines. If an application is unsuccessful, students may reapply for entry the following semester.
