Loyola University Chicago

Department of Fine and Performing Arts


All students pursuing a major or minor degree in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts are assigned an advisor with expertise in that major or minor soon after declaring their intent to pursue the degree. All DFPA degree-seeking students should meet with their DFPA academic advisor each semester prior to course registration to assure they are taking the appropriate classes to complete their degree in a timely manner. In addition, DFPA advisors will offer advice on preparing for auditions and portfolio development. Students seeking majors in Music and Theatre receive letters from their advisors summarizing the results of faculty's end of the semester student evaluations.

The name of your DFPA advisor can be found on your LOCUS page. Should no name appear, contact the DFPA for assistance.

Students are advised to keep track of their progress towards degree completion by consulting the appropriate degree tracking sheet each semester. For more information, see your major/minor site:
