CADC welcomes the opportunity to show prospective students, parents and friends around the college. CADC Ambassadors will offer tours Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the regular Auburn University semester. Tours will be preceded by a 30 minute informational session with an advisor. Informational sessions and tours begin at 9:30am in Dudley 120 and run approximately one hour.
Tours are given Monday-Friday.
All incoming Freshman in the Pre-Architecture, Pre-Landscape Architecture, Pre-Building Science, Pre-Graphic Design, Pre-Industrial Design, and Environmental Design programs have the opportunity to participate in the CADC Learning Communities.
Professional programs are inherently more expensive to run than non-professional programs. They require more space, more personnel, a lower student-to-teacher ratio, access to a higher level of technology than most disciplines, and incur significant costs associated with achieving and maintaining accreditation from the appropriate specialized, national agencies. As a result, the College of Architecture, Design and Construction charges a professional fee to partially defray the difference between state funding and tuition, and the actual costs of our professional programs. Within each program, a professional fee charge of $2,160 is tied to enrollment in specific courses, which are noted on curriculum models. During semesters when students are enrolled in these classes they will be charged a professional fee.
Through the professional fees, the CADC continues to provide our students with rigorous and relevant academic experiences, which contribute to our programs being recognized as among the best in the nation.
Continued contributions and support from friends and alumni mean the world to our students. In the CADC, we awarded $197,571 to 132 students, for an average of $1496.
This means that 14% of the 944 eligible students in professional programs in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction received some financial award from our generous alumni and friends.
