The faculty and staff of the College of Fine Arts (CFA) would like to welcome you to UNLV. We would also like to encourage you to chart your academic progress during your course of studies here at UNLV by meeting with an advisor in the CFA Advising Center.
First and second year students in Architecture, Art, Dance, Film, Music, and Theatre, and new transfer students are required to meet initially with an advisor at the CFA Advising Center to assist in class scheduling, discuss academic career goals, chart academic progress toward the undergraduate degree, and discuss other concerns you might have as a major (or minor) in the College of Fine Arts.
As students advance past the second year in their respective disciplines, they must seek advising from the school or department of their major. Each area of study has different requirements, as well as recommendations for electives. Departmental links provided here are for reference, and do not substitute for meeting with a department advisor in the second or third year of study.
In order to be considered for any scholarships under the departments' authority, the students should contact the person responsible for the scholarships in the department they are majoring in. We strongly encourage the students to go on line and use www.fafsa.ed.gov link to complete the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). A list of students who are approved for financial is sent to all departments for their consideration during the scholarship awarding process.
For the five scholarships that are under Dean's office authority, students have to submit a specific application by Feb. 15 of each year and return it to Ivana Goga, the CFA Scholarship Coordinator, CDC 2, room 215, telephone 702-895-5390.
