If you are interested in becoming an Art Minor, please review the information below and submit the Art Minor Application Form. You will receive an email reply to indicate if your application has been accepted or denied. Accepted students will also receive detailed information about required courses.

What is the deadline to submit this form?  

  • Applications are only accepted for consideration during the following timeframes: * September 1 - October 15 for the following Spring semester * February 1 - March 15 for the following Fall semester
  • Applications submitted outside of these dates will be denied.
  • There are a limited number of spaces available each semester; students are encouraged to apply early

What are the eligibility requirements to request an Art Minor: In order to ensure successful completion of requirements prior to graduation, applicants must have less than 57 credits to apply for an Art Minor. Exceptions will only be considered if a student has already taken ART104 or 110, and has completed the Art History requirement.

How do I enroll in Art classes once I am an Art Minor?  

  • All Art Minors must attend the mandatory minor advising fairs held each April for Fall enrollment and December for Spring enrollment. Individual advising meetings are not available.
  • Art Minor students are not able to self-enroll in art classes. Enrollments are only processed during the advising fair. 
  • Students will receive an invitation via email to attend the Art Minor Fair. 
  • Students who are abroad should email @email to make arrangements. 

Important Notes:

  • Although every effort is made to accommodate student interest, enrollment in desired art courses is not guaranteed. Advisors recommend planning numerous semesters ahead by choosing a top-3 list of desired courses each semester and completing prerequisites before moving on to upper-level studio courses.
  • Art Minors do not declare a concentration in a studio area (painting, sculpture, animation, etc.), instead are encouraged to take a broad selection of courses in the visual arts.
