Art Major Advising

Faculty Advisors

Each student who declares a major in Art is assigned to a faculty advisor. If a student wishes to be assigned a specific advisor, submit a request to the Art Department office. It is required for all Art majors to meet with an Art faculty advisor at least once each academic year to review academic goals and to ensure the most appropriate courses are taken to complete your degree in a timely manner.

Advising Meetings

During the first advising meeting, the Art faculty advisor will prepare an Art Department Advising Sheet listing all Sacramento State Art classes and any applicable transfer classes from other colleges or universities. To prepare for the first meeting with a faculty advisor, students should review the requirements for the Art major that apply to their catalog rights. Transfer students should review their transcripts for any Art courses taken at other colleges or universities. Information about current transfer articulation agreements between Sacramento State and other state universities and community colleges in California can be found on ASSIST. Students wishing to transfer Art courses not listed on ASSIST or taken at institutions without articulation agreements should be prepared to provide documentation of the course contents (catalog description, syllabi, etc.) A portfolio of work done in the other colleges Studio Art classes may be required to determine equivalency.

Preparing for Graduation

The Graduation Application is available online. The priority filing date for Graduation Applications is October 1. Using the Art Department Advising Sheet, the student will list on their graduation application all Art classes being applied towards the major, whether taken at Sacramento State or elsewhere, and whether completed (with final grade), in progress, or yet to be taken. This draft must be reviewed with the Art faculty advisor.
