Advising

We are excited to welcome you to the Studio, Media Arts + Art History Department! We look forward to getting to know you and your individual interests within your specific degree plan. As your academic advisors, we are committed to guiding you through important decisions related to your academic progress as well as supporting your educational/career goals from your first day on campus until the day you graduate! It has been proven that increased frequency of student-advisor contact is a positive factor during your time at UTA and should be taken into consideration each semester. Please follow the guidelines listed below to set up an appointment with your art advisor today.

SCHEDULING YOUR APPOINTMENT

Appointments within the Art and Art History Department are scheduled based on specific student information. Our early advising sessions are reserved for graduating seniors and those majors/students who are allotted early access. We also host our ADVISATHON event for those students who have attempted their first 21-hour CPR (Concentration Portfolio Review). All eligible students within these categories are sent individual, specific emails outlining their advising process.

Pre-CPR students, New Transfers, Change Majors (to Art), and Prospective students will be able to schedule appointments at a specific time that usually occurs after ADVISATHON.

Appointments are scheduled by either calling the Art Office at 817.272.2891 or Book Online. Please have the following information on hand when you schedule:

  • Name
  • Student ID # (100xxxxxxx)
  • Reason for Appointment (Advising, General Questions, Internship, etc.)
  • Status (Current, Transfer, Prospective Student)
  • Area of Concentration
  • Phone Number
  • UTA Email Address (or personal email if not current student)

Please note the following:

  • Emailing your advisor to set up an appointment can result in lost time and inefficiency.)
  • **Booking for the incorrect category may result in your appointment being cancelled and rescheduled for the appropriate date. For special circumstances needing specific attention, please call the Art office at 817.272.2891.
  • Advisors do not schedule appointments via email, as it can result in lost time and inefficiency when maneuvering availability.
