FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)
What about AP credits? What counts?
Effective Fall 2018, AP studio art credits are all elective credits. AP Drawing and AP 2D Design both come in as ARTT** courses; AP 3D Design comes in as ART171, which we no longer teach and therefore is also elective credit.
Students may receive credit for ART187 and/or ART188 depending on their score on the Art History AP test (ART188 for score of 3; both for score of 4 or 5).
You can also look at AP information online or in the New Student Guidebook you received at orientation.
Is there a certain order I need to take art education courses?
Yes. You need to go in the order of the classes (195, 295, 296, 395, etc.); However, you can take 195 with 295 or 296. You can also take 493 and 495 at the same time.
Do I need to meet with my advisor?
YES. As catalog years change, course timings change, and situations are different for each of you. We are here to help you!
What should I have prepared when I meet with my advisor?
If you have a scheduled meeting with your advisor, it's a good idea to look at your DARS ahead of time. It's also helpful to have a list of questions prepared to guide the meeting.
