All grades of I (incomplete) that are not otherwise changed within one academic year of the date awarded will automatically convert to F. A grade of D+ or lower in a design studio may not be used toward graduation or as a prerequisite to the next studio . A grade of I is lower than D+. To take a design studio more than twice, a student must have written permission from the dean.
Courses in the college are generally sequential and must be taken in the correct order. They may not be skipped, doubled up, or otherwise taken out of sequence. Most of the courses are offered only in the proper semester and are therefore unavailable, if missed, until the next year.
Students taking first-year courses and wishing to continue their studies in architecture or industrial design will be evaluated at the end of the spring semester for placement in second year. Permission to enroll in second year will be based on a review of design portfolio and overall performance in first year courses.
After the sixth semester, a review of each architecture student's work will be made to evaluate progress and to determine the appropriate degree program the student should follow (the four-year Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design or five-year Bachelor of Architecture). In conjunction with the review, students should develop a degree plan with their academic advisors. The degree plan lists courses taken and must show that students have completed the degree requirements for the first three years of the curriculum before enrolling for fourth-year design studio courses.
All student work may be retained permanently by the college. Students are encouraged to photograph their work before submitting in order to have a record of it for their portfolio.
