Admission to the area of study in visual communication under the B.F.A. in studio art is limited. See “Limited Admissions and Limited Retention Requirements” in the Admission section of this catalog. 


Requirements for All Majors

The School of Art reserves the privilege of requiring a portfolio review to determine a student’s retention in a degree program or emphasis. (See B.F.A. emphases 1-3.)

The School of Art also reserves the right to require a portfolio examination if there is doubt about the acceptance of transfer credits (in lieu of particular courses in the major.)

To qualify for graduation, transfer students must take at least 15 semester hours of courses designated in their chosen emphasis in the School of Art at NIU.

Recommendation

It is recommended that students confer regularly with their advisers in order to balance studio and general education requirements. In general, students will find it difficult to carry more than three studio art classes in one semester.

Additional Requirements and Course Information

The School of Art reserves the right to retain for its collection any work produced in scheduled classes. Studio-lecture courses meet two hours per semester hour each week. Students in studio courses are required to schedule one hour per week in the studio (in addition to class time) for each semester hour.

Enrollment in one course for more than 8 hours per semester requires consent of the School of Art.
