We welcome transfer students into the Art Conservation Major, but it is advisable to contact Jocelyn Alcántara-García, Brian Baade, Nina Owczarek, or Debra Hess Norris in the early stages of planning. The Department cannot
guarantee that you will graduate in less than two years if you have not
started chemistry prior to transferring. We follow the College of Arts and
Sciences’ recommendation of a minimum GPA requirement of 2.0 or above. Keep
in mind a high GPA is necessary to be competitive in art conservation
graduate school admissions.
Internal UD transfers can make a change in their majors
and minors via UDSIS.
Students coming from another institution are
responsibility for finding equivalencies for transfer credits from your
previous institutions. This may entail going to the specific department (for
example, chemistry) and showing the syllabus and coursework (or at a minimum a
catalog course description) for each course. Each relevant department will then
determine how the course would be ranked in our system. It is a good idea
to start this process early and not wait until senior check out. The University Transfer Center has basic guidelines, but you must complete this work on
your own. If you have taken a course that someone has already transferred
from your previous institution, then it may already be in the system. In
this case, a transfer is simple and almost automatic. Always check first
to see if the Transfer Center already has the course in the system.
If you already have an
undergraduate degree and would like to take art conservation courses, you may apply for an additional bachelor’s degree or take individual courses as a continuing education student.
