SMFA's Advising program assists students in successfully completing their program requirements while also meeting their personal goals. 

Academic advising is provided by a team of professional staff advisors who are also professional artists. Working with the student, advisors review the student’s records (including transcripts, questionnaires, and essays), course selections, and discuss the student's goals to advise on a path of study.

To better serve the SMFA student population, faculty are encouraged to use the Mid-semester Progress Report and submit it to Academic Affairs during both the fall and spring semesters.

SMFA is committed to supporting the needs and rights of students with disabilities.  We will make every effort to provide reasonable accommodations and support for qualified students with disabilities to ensure they reach their potential.

The associate dean of Academic Affairs handles requests for special accommodations on an individual basis.  Requests for accommodations for Tufts courses may also be made. In some cases, the requests may be referred to the Academic Resource Center at Tufts.  Students with disabilities may be asked to provide recent clinical documentation before receiving services. Clinical evaluations must be done by a licensed psychologist, education specialist or physician, and must contain specific academic recommendations. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange and pay for all diagnostic testing.
