Transfer students

Admission of transfer students to 300/400 level studio courses will be contingent upon submission of a portfolio of previous work in the medium, to assure appropriate preparation. The portfolio is to be presented to the instructor on the first day of classes. A slide or digital portfolio is acceptable, and the portfolio already submitted to the department may be used.

It is recommended that all transfer students have a personal interview/portfolio review with the Art Department, and/or send to the art department a digital or slide portfolio which is representative of all previous college-level studio work. The portfolio review will assist in advising by helping to identify strengths, interests and weaknesses, and it can be used to recommend advanced placement or additional work in certain areas. This portfolio will be forwarded to the art advisor, who will return it after the first advisement meeting. In addition, only art courses equivalent to SUNY Plattsburgh’s art courses will count toward the art major. Transferred equivalents of art appreciation courses may not be used in the Plattsburgh art major.

Transfer students must complete a minimum of 21 credits in art courses at SUNY Plattsburgh and a total of 36 credits at Plattsburgh, including:
