GPA Policy

All students who declared an art major after Spring 2009 must maintain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher in order to remain in the major. Please read the details here.

Degree Audit

DegreeAudit is a new and very useful tool available on the CUNY Web Portal. DegreeAudit lists the classes a student has taken and identifies classes needed for graduation. Log-in with your CUNY account. Please be advised that DegreeAudit is still being updated and may not reflect past degree requirements. 


The Art Department has a full-time Academic Advising Specialist available Monday through Friday in the Art Office. In addition, full-time faculty is available to advise students regarding major requirements and career goals. Contact the Art Office for faculty office hours.
