Painting (B.F.A.)

Admission Requirements

No entrance portfolio is required for admission of incoming students (including both Freshman and Transfer students), who choose to major in the BFA Painting Program.

Incoming students and transfer students can declare their BFA painting major during their admission application process without a portfolio review.

All students enter as a Bachelor of Fine Arts painting major and complete a selection of foundation and major courses. During their second year of the programs individual reviews will be conducted to assist students on their progress towards their degree.

Students are expected to assume the costs of materials they use in their courses. All studio courses may have an additional instructional charge for materials used in class. Students enrolled in a studio course are expected to work a minimum of two additional hours each week outside of class for each credit granted for that class
