I want my son/daughter to study X, how can I get them into your school?

I have sample work (visual arts, theater, music, etc.) that I would like to submit. Where can I send it?

Students are not to send anything beyond the application itself to the Admissions office.  However, if a sample work is requested from the applicant, sample work should be sent directly to the relevant academic department.  To see a list of the departments within the Division of Arts and Humanities, please go here.

My son/daughter says they don't have enough credits to graduate, what classes do they need to take?

Each department, and not the Division, is responsible for creating the required curricula of their majors. The best way to find out about what classes students need to take is from the undergraduate advisors of each department.

I have a grade and/or course related complaint about my TA and/or Professor; can I talk to the Dean?

The Dean of the Division of Arts and Humanities cannot get involved in student grade issues. Students concerned about grade and/or course related should take them up first with their respective professors and/or TA’s and/or supervising Professors, and only then pursue the matter with either their department or Dean of Undergraduate Studies. 

I have a non-grade and/or non-course related complaint about my TA and/or Professor; can I talk to the Dean?

The Dean cannot get involved in TA actions.  The Dean can however consider speaking with students that have non-grade and/or non-course related complaints about their Professor if the issue cannot be resolved at the departmental level, either with the Professor themselves or the department chair.
