Frequently Asked Questions About the Gonzaga University Art Program

Not all of the Art History classes taken abroad transfer as Art core requirement classes. Based upon established departmental criteria, a class may or may not count as an Art core requirement. Generally, classes taken which are limited to a specific culture, do not cover a large geographical setting or cover a narrow time period, do not count as an Art department core requirement.
 
Not all Art classes taken in Florence satisfy the Art core requirement.  At this time Drawing I and Design, if taken in Florence do transfer as Art core requirements.  This is based upon established departmental criteria.
 
Upper division studio classes do NOT satisfy the fine arts core.
 
The Art Department does not review transfer courses from a community college or any other school.  The admissions office sends the transcript to the evaluations office of the Registrar.  If the Registrar's office has questions, they contact the Art Department Chair.
 
Neither PHIL472(VART466) - Philosophy of Art and/or  PHIL475 - Philosophy of the Visual Arts count as a fine arts core requirement.

If a student withdraws from a studio art class prior to 'last day to drop' the lab fee, along with the tuition for that class, will also be refunded.
