The Academic Advisors at The College of Fine Arts work closely with students from freshman year through graduation. The Academic Advisors are committed to providing a holistic experience that ensures students to be well-equipped for the challenges of successfully completing a fine arts degree from the University of Arizona.

Academic Advising

  • Helps you understand and complete your major and minor degree requirements.
  • It also helps you to develop goals in conjunction with your academic course of study.
  • Clarify university academic policies and procedures, and program requirements.
  • Explains academic distinction, probation, disqualification, general petitions, and enrollment in more than 19 units, leave of absence, and disability-related course substitutions.

The University has established guidelines regarding academic policies and procedures, your rights and responsibilities, and your degree requirements. You are responsible for your own academic progress and need to become familiar with UA policies.
