We recommend that all prospective students arrange a visit to the campus for a portfolio review and a personal tour of our program to see our new, state-of-the-art facilities. For general Ohio Wesleyan University admission information, please go to the Admission website.
Students may be admitted to the B.A. art history and studio programs by applying to and being accepted by the University. We do not have a portfolio review for admittance into the B.A.
Students may be admitted to the B.F.A. studio program after having completed ART 110, 111, 112, 113, and 351, and by presenting a portfolio of their work to the art faculty. The application can be submitted only after the completion of these courses but must occur before the end of the sophomore year. Acceptance into the B.F.A. program is based on an evaluation of the portfolio materials and the student’s previous performance in all Fine Arts Department courses. Those who are not admitted into the B.F.A. program have one semester to develop work for a second submission.
Fine Arts Scholarship
We are excited to offer several half-tuition scholarships that are available to incoming freshmen who intend to major in Fine Arts. These are very competitive four-year awards that are renewable annually. If you are interested in one of these awards, we strongly recommend that you visit campus and bring your portfolio for a personal review of your work.
To apply for a Fine Arts scholarship, a separate application must be submitted to the Fine Arts Department. Learn more about submission requirements.
