For Foreign Applicants

The Graduate Division allows the Art History Department to provide funding for international students only in the PhD program. To retain funding, international students must maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA and remain within normative time to completion of the degree program. (This means that they must write their field reviews in the seventh quarter and present the prospectus in the eighth quarter.) If the international student does not meet these requirements she or he will be assessed tuition and fees at the international student level. Please note that fees per quarter are substantially higher for international students and do not cover living expenses.

International students must also fill out the Financial Verification form to provide evidence of adequate financial support.
