Student Support

Financial Assistance

Opportunities exist for students to apply for fee waivers, assistance with art supply and textbook purposes and other assistance. The deadline for most applications is February 1 of each year.


Other paid and unpaid positions are also available: Art Students’ League and Potters’ Guild officers, Student and Student-Assistant Gallery Directors, Teaching and Technical Assistants.


Conscientious students are needed to fill a variety of workstudy positions within the department. In fact, we would be hard-pressed to run this small but compact department without our workstudy students. Contacting the Administrative Assistant is the first move if students are interested.

Student Art Organizations

Two active student organizations plan art events and keep the faculty informed about student concerns.


Founded in 1929, The Art Students’ League (ASL) sponsors workshops and an Annual Art Auction for students and the community, participates in the monthly Billings network and arranges for students to participate in off-campus exhibits.


The Potters’ Guild holds annual fund-raising events and, at times, travels to ceramic conventions. These are two active student groups offering “art talk” and exhibit opportunities on a regular basis.
