Academic Advice

The student must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.500 to remain in good standing in the Art Department programs. If students drop below this GPA, they will be placed on department probation and given a semester to improve their standing. Students who do not improve will be dismissed from the program. To graduate, a minimum GPA of 2.500 is compulsory in all courses required for the minor.

SUNY Seamless Transfer is a SUNY-wide program intended to make transferring to UB and other SUNY Schools simple and efficient for SUNY students. SUNY has defined courses that SUNY students can take before transferring which will apply to the major at UB and ensure timely graduation.

Information about the Transfer Path for this major can be found on the SUNY website.

A student interested in transferring to UB should review the information included in UB's catalog pages for the program as well as viewing information about transferability of courses via TAURUS, UB's articulation website.
