Student Success & Advisement Center

Academic Advisement

Intentional and informed decisions lead to academic success!

In the College of Fine Arts, academic advising provides students with the opportunity to build a collaborative relationship with their advisor for the purpose of gaining assistance in planning their educational, career, and life goals by learning the skills needed for academic success. Students can discover how to access the variety of resources and services available to them on the UNM campus. The College of Fine Arts Student Success and Advisement Center is staffed by experienced advisors who provide Fine Arts undergraduate students with a multitude of advisement services.

The Center functions to help students learn about the degrees available in the College of Fine Arts as well as core curriculum, major course requirements, and College and UNM graduation requirements. Although requirements are listed here and in the UNM Catalog, many of the degrees in Fine Arts are complex. While, it is the student’s responsibility to know and understand the requirements for the degree and graduation, many may need further guidance, which the advisors can provide. Along with information, the Fine Arts advisors can provide degree progress sheets, curricular updates, and degree summaries.

If you are a incoming freshman, transfer student or someone who just wants to know more about our degrees, please feel free to contact our office with your questions or to set-up an in person appointment.

If you enter through the lobby, you’ll want to go around the Art Museum to the right, at which point you should see a mural to your left and another hallway leading off to your right. Our office is just down that hallway in room 1103.
