The Arts Advising division of the University College (consisting of both visual/graphic arts, and performing arts) serves to support the scholar/artist during their first year at VCU. By providing students with consistent academic advising and solid knowledge of the artistic process, UC Arts advisors help students to be more engaged: with their academics, their respective departments, and their art.
Students are also encouraged to be familiar with their departmental websites:
Students should also get to know the website for the School of the Arts
This website includes:
- Ester, a one-stop shop for all news and events in the School of the Arts,
- Jeanette, a blog with job listings for Arts students, and
- Scholarships, a searchable database of available scholarships by department.
Current first-year students are assigned to academic advisors. Students can visit my.vcu.edu to identify who their advisor is and to schedule appointments. Click on “Advising Information for Students”.
