Need help with advising?
Virtual Advising Only: School of Art will be closed for in-person drop-in advising and appointments until further notice. Academic advisors can still be reached via email or Zoom during this period.
Drop-in advising is available for currently enrolled students who are art majors or art minors, or current students who are interested in exploring an art major or art minor.
Drop-in advising sessions are typically limited to a maximum of 10 minutes. There will be a wait time in most cases. We highly encourage students to make a 10 or 30 minute appointment to avoid having to wait during drop-in hours.
Students should have their ID number ready to provide to the screener when visiting the Zoom waiting room.
Students interested in changing their major within the School of Art, can fill out the Change of Major Form
Advisors will review your eligibility and email you the results of the review. We will also provide you with a list of recommended courses to take for your first semester.
School of Art has the following art minors: Art History, Graphic Design, Photography, Printmaking, Ceramics, and Sculpture
Students who are eligible to submit an application to declare an art minor can fill out the School of Art Minor Request Form
Art Advisors will review your eligibility and email you once the review process is complete. Keep in mind, minors are to be completed within the same timeframe as your major. You cannot extend your graduation to complete a minor. If you are unsure if a minor will extend your time, please consult your major advisor.
In order to declare an art minor, several lower division art courses must be completed. Other eligibility requirements must be met.
Students who have been recently admitted to CSULB School of Art will be contacted in May (Fall admitted) or in December (Spring admitted). School of Art Advisors will provide newly admitted students guidance on the registration process, and guidance for your list of recommended courses for your first semester.
