CHANGES IN THE GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIREMENT FOR REGISTRATION IN ADVANCED DESIGN COURSES IN THE
SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2006-2008



On page 25, under the heading ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION, in the School of Architecture chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


REGISTRATION FOR ADVANCED DESIGN COURSES

To register for advanced design courses, a student seeking the Bachelor of Architecture degree must have completed all of the work prescribed for the preceding years, with the exception of electives, and must satisfy the third-year portfolio requirement. [The student must have a University grade point average of at least 2.50 and must meet the prerequisite for each course.]


RATIONALE: Experience has shown that the student’s third-year portfolio is a sufficient indicator of his or her ability to succeed in advanced design courses. All students must meet prerequisites; repetition of this requirement in the section on advanced design courses is unnecessary.
