Prospective Student Advising & Orientation

Prospective Student Advising Session

If you would like to become a UNT student and join CVAD, you are encouraged to partake in a prospective student advising session.  In this session, you will learn about our programs, admission procedures and more.  You can now register for your session online.[FORM]

We look forward to meeting you!

Orientation and Advising

UNT Admissions allows prospective students to access general information regarding admission standards, application processes and deadlines, tuition and fees, and new student orientations.

All undergraduate students, including new CVAD students, are required to attend new student orientation and participate in academic advisement prior to their first enrollment at UNT.  CVAD faculty and/or professional advisors are available at orientation to answer questions and to help with course and program choices.  You can learn more on UNT’s Orientation website.

Transfer students should be prepared to show transcripts and catalog course descriptions from previous schools. Students who have completed courses beyond the art core courses (Design I and II, Drawing I and II, Art Appreciation and Art History Survey I and II) at other schools may be asked to show a portfolio before enrollment in courses in their major, as some majors require all students to participate in a formal entry review.

While the Graduate School does not require post baccalaureate students who are second bachelor's degree candidates to attend orientation, we strongly recommend that such students participate in CVAD orientation, which includes an opportunity to consult faculty about degree program.

For more information regarding orientation and advising, you may call the advising office 940-565-2216 or email artadviseasst@unt.edu.
