Admissions & Aid
To facilitate communication, when you reach out to anyone in the Art Department, include your EMPL ID so that we can access your records easily. Please also consult the FAQ at the end of this document; some questions may not need an adviser.
While you can come to any of us to ask questions, the particular areas of specialty are indicated.
E-mail the professor of the class(es) you want to take to get an overtally. Overtallies can be granted only by the professor giving the class (not the Art Department staff or advisers). You may have to consider taking a different section than your ideal section. If the professor agrees, e-mail Elizabeth Vittorioso and cc the chair for the permission to be entered.
From the Web Portal, choose Academics/Faculty Profile Search and look up by last name. Elizabeth Vittorioso might be able to provide alternate e-mails for instructors if you do not receive an answer.
Forward the e-mail permission to Elizabeth Vittorioso with your EMPL ID. She will grant the overtally and then you can register.
Check the following:
If none of these is the explanation, reach out to an adviser.
The Internship course is not a course with us; it is just a mechanism for receiving course credit for an internship that you do outside of Brooklyn College. You need to find, apply for, and be accepted for the internship yourself, then get the internship approved by Malka Simon, who will instruct you in final details for receiving course credit.
You need to first get a faculty member to supervise your independent work. You need to pitch an idea for independent work to a faculty member. If approved, you will fill out paperwork, to be signed by both the faculty member and the chair. The chair approves all independent studies. Please do not consider independent study if you have not taken the courses in the area. Independent study is designed for advanced work with a professor with whom you have worked.
You should apply for graduation (on the portal), which will trigger an audit, before you begin your last semester, at the latest, or preferably your final year. This will highlight any issues in completing requirements and give you time to complete them.
Speak to an adviser or the chair, who can advise you depending on the nature of your problem. You may speak to a trusted professor who is not an adviser as well, and we will figure out the best course of action.
