Students who wish to complete a B.F.A. in Art must meet the following criteria:
Overall grade point average of 2.5.
Achieve a grade point average of 3.0 or higher in the foundation courses (ART 1100, ART 1103, ART 1104, ART 1105, and ART 1106). Students who do not have a 3.0 grade point average in these foundation courses may, with the approval of their advisor, appeal to continue in their degree program and graduate as an Art major by submitting a portfolio for faculty review.
All major coursework must be completed with a C- or better grade. Courses with D or F grades, including Art electives, must be repeated and a higher grade earned before a student can qualify for graduation with a degree in Art. Individual Project courses (ART 3385) must be taken in the same medium when being repeated to earn a higher grade.
