Academic Advising

Undergraduate Advising

Professional academic advisors are available to meet with currently enrolled CVAD students regarding course selection, degree progress, degree plans and other administrative questions. Faculty advisors are available to assist students with field-related information, such as careers and course substitutions. To inquire about course substitutions, contact the program coordinator for your major.

Prospective Student Advising Sessions

If you are thinking about coming to UNT for art as a freshman or transfer student, you are encouraged to begin the admissions process through the UNT Admissions Office.

The College of Visual Arts and Design invites prospective students to meet with LeAndra Pope, CVAD recruiter, to discuss degree program options and transfer coursework that could be applicable towards an art major. There is no need to bring a portfolio of your artwork; however, if you have completed any college-level transfer coursework, an unofficial copy of your transcript would be helpful during your advising session. We do not need high school transcripts. If you have any questions or need accommodations, contact LeAndra Pope, or 940-565-4003. 

If you are interested in a tour of CVAD, contact LeAndra; for tours of the entire UNT campus, signup at
