Virtual "Drop-in" Advising Hours are updated at the beginning of each week here. If you are on campus and would prefer in-person advising, just let Devan know. We are usually able to accomodate in-person advising (in the listed hours) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Current UF Student Advising for Majors Outside of the SA+AH

Major Change Inquiries: For current UF students *not* majoring within the SA+AH who have inquiries regarding changing majors into one of our majors, please follow the instructions for visiting the advisor during the Student "Drop-in" Hours here.  Please also review the information below as you may find the answer to your inquiry and save yourself time!

Minors/Certificate Inquiries: For current UF students with inquiries regarding our art history minor, art studio minor, or ceramics certificate, please follow the instructions for visiting the advisors during the Student "Drop-in" Hours here.  During advanced registration (early March through mid-April), we ask that you meet with us after April 19. If you are an incoming freshman, interested in studio art classes, please visit the advisor sometime during the fall or spring semesters to learn more about the minor and how to gain access to our coursework. There are no studio courses you can take to work towards the art minor during your first semester as a freshman.  Additionally, please be sure to read the information in the drop-down links below.

Gaining Access to Studio Classes as a Non-Art Major

         Although the majority of our studio classes have prerequisites that require you to be one of our majors, it is still possible to gain access, pending space availability after our majors have finished registering, and pending sufficient art background. For gaining access to summer (and possibly fall) semester studio classes, we encourage you to reach out after April 19 to see if we have any available space. While access to our studio classes is *never* guaranteed, it may indeed be possible - be sure to check with us. We'd love to have you join us, pending space availability!

         We also have a variety of studio courses designed for non-art majors, and other oppportunities to get more involved with the College of the Arts. Learn more here.

Graphic Design Certificate

         Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting majors outside of the SA+AH into our Graphic Design Certificate program due to faculty and space limitations.
