Advising

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. All DFPA degree-seeking students should meet with their advisor periodically to assure they are on track to complete their degree in a timely manner.

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