The School of Art and Design Professors and Staff Members care greatly about our students education and their health. This situation has upended normal procedures and continues to provide constant changes in our operation. Please contact us with questions and remember we are here to support you.
Artwork PickupThe School of Art & Design is providing times for student artwork pickup or returning checked out equipment for the end of Winter 2020 semester. Limited access will be available for students on Friday May 1st, Friday May 8th, and Saturday May 9th from 9am – 1pm. Be prepared to wait, as we need to practice social distancing and can only allow a limited number of students in each studio. Mask are Required! If you cannot make one of those times please contact your faculty member directly and arrangements can be made. Remember, the lockers will not be cleaned out this summer so any items can remain until Fall Semester. If you cannot return until Fall please contact your faculty member and storage arrangements can be made.

ASL Share FeesWorking On It: Art & Design Faculty are working with our Bookkeeper Karey to determine if students did not have access to materials paid for this semester due to the recent move to Online classes. If students were given materials upfront the share refund will not be necessary. Where appropriate the school is looking into refunds. The ASL is a not-for-profit entity and this will take some time to arrange. Please be patient with all of us as we navigate this unique situation.
