Prospective students interested in Art or Graphic Design (BA or BFA) need to be accepted at Oswego through the Admissions Office. Only those interested in pursuing the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree need to apply to the Art Department for acceptance into either the BFA Studio Art or Graphic Design program.
If you are applying or transferring into one of the two BFA degree programs you are required to submit a portfolio for review by the faculty of the Art Department. In addition to this, you must submit a statement of intent, an annotated work list, an application form, and copies of your transcripts.
Students seeking admission for one of our BFA programs need to demonstrate that they possess an aptitude for hard work as evidenced by a well-crafted portfolio, exemplary academic performance (preferably 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher), and writing skills. Students may apply more than once. However, repeated rejection should be taken as a sign that perhaps you should consider an alternative path and we strongly advise students to not submit more than twice. Successful applicants typically work closely with their academic advisors.
For information on applying, please download the following application brochure:BFA Information and Application Brochure Download
COMING TO OSWEGO AS A FRESHMEN
Freshmen are strongly encouraged to attend Oswego as BA majors and apply for the BFA during their sophomore year. This allows students time to understand the demands of the program and to build a portfolio for admission. Freshmen are enrolled in courses that are designed to specifically help them address their development as artist, including exploring the benefits of BFA verses BA degrees. If a student is denied admission into a BFA, he or she can apply again, or consider alternative study plans. Academic advisors are able to assist students in this situation.
COMING TO OSWEGO AS A TRANSFER STUDENT
Transfer students with Associate Degrees in Art or Graphic Design should consider applying to the BFA before coming to Oswego. Students without degrees, or those with degrees in other areas, should come to Oswego and work with an advisor here to determine the degree program most appropriate for their development. All transfer students are enrolled in courses that are designed to specifically help them address their development as an artist, including exploring the benefits of a BFA versus a BA degree.
Transfer Credit LimitsAll transfer students should keep in mind that no more than 27 hours of Studio Art/Graphic Design credit may be transferred into the BA program and no more than 40 hours of studio art, graphic design, or art history credit may be transferred into the BFA program.
