Transferred Credit Review

Courses in art history or studio art that have been transferred to Indiana University Bloomington from another institution or campus are not counted as part of a fine arts major unless they have been reviewed by the School of Fine Arts faculty.

For an art history course review, the student should supply the reviewer with the following information: the title of the course, textbook name, and the period covered. The student should bring the course description and syllabus.

For a review of transferred studio credit, the student should provide the reviewer with a portfolio consisting of representative work from each area (e.g., painting, sculpture, etc.) for which transfer credit is desired. It should include both studies and finished work. Some studio areas accept slides or photographs in lieu of actual objects. The portfolio should be as complete as possible.
