Students in the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts are required to meet with a faculty advisor each semester on the school designated Advising Day(s). These days are announced in class and are posted in the various buildings or you may contact your school office for the date(s). Students also are notified via the monthly college eNewsletter and by individual notices all sent to their OU student email addresses. Current students who are not advised on Advising Day will have to wait to be advised and to enroll until the three days prior to the next semester starting.

  • Newly admitted students, transfer students and readmitted students should proceed to the Fine Arts Dean’s office for copies of their records and then to the individual school offices (see locations below) to be assigned to a faculty advisor.
