Prospective Art students must first be accepted into SUNY New Paltz. Upon acceptance to the college, students interested in Art programs and meeting departmental academic requirements1 will be asked to submit a portfolio to determine admission to the Art Department. (Portfolio content and submission requirements differ for freshmen and transfer students; specific information is available at www.newpaltz.edu/art/admissions.html.) Students accepted into the Art Department will be placed according to the strengths of their artistic capabilities, as demonstrated by the proficiency and promise of work included in their portfolios.

Accepted students enter as prospective candidates for the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Visual Arts or as a pre-major in Art Education. Upon completion of the Art Department foundation core and basic studio classes in a particular medium, students in the BA or BS program may choose to apply to one of the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree programs. Entrance into a BFA program is by portfolio and interview; the student applies directly to the specific program of interest.

Transfer Applicants:

Up to 12 credits for the equivalent of New Paltz freshman foundation courses (Drawing: Visual Thinking I; Drawing: Visual Thinking II; Design: Color; Design: Form) will be accepted on the basis of transcript alone. Credit for other studio courses beyond the foundation sequence (and appropriate placement in our course sequences) shall be determined by portfolio review.
