School of Art & Design Advising

The School of Art & Design is committed to providing the best experience possible for students both in and out of the classroom. Our advising system is designed to ensure that students meet regularly with faculty members in the department in order to discuss their program of study, course schedules and larger goals for their experience at Eastern.

Graduate Advising

All prospective and current graduate students, as well as students in the department on a non-degree basis meet with our graduate coordinator:

Undergraduate Advising

All majors and minors in the department are assigned a permanent faculty advisor that they are expected to meet with each semester during the open advising period (usually from the week before registration begins until two weeks into registration). This ensures that students stay on track with timelines for graduation and get the most possible out of their experience at Eastern.

New Majors and Minors

New majors and minors should fill out an online declaration of major/minor form, then contact the School of Art & Design to be assigned a faculty advisor. Once assigned a faculty advisor, they should meet with that advisor during the next open advising period.

Transfer Students

Upon acceptance to the university, students with transfer credits in art must meet with Sarah Krizan, our professional advisor in the Francine Parker Center (located in the Student Center), in order to have those transfer credits evaluated. Once they have met with Sarah Krizan, they will be assigned a permanent faculty advisor.

Spring/Summer Advising (non-transfer students)

Student should make every effort to meet with their faculty advisors during open advising periods. In those instances where students require advising in the spring and summer, their permanent faculty advisor might not be available.
