Advisors see students from 8:30 am–11:30 am and from 1:00 pm–4:00 pm in 120 Dudley Hall. All current CADC students are required to meet with an advisor once a semester. We also require prospective students coming for a visit to make an appointment in advance. Appointments for prospective students will be made on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Students must meet with an advisor to know which credits from another institution have been applied to an Auburn degree. Admissions determine which courses are needed for admission to Auburn University, but the advisor decides how those credits will apply toward degree requirements.
As a transient student, the student must get a transient form from Student Services. The student should have the form completed by an advisor who must approve courses for transfer credit. Students should note that they cannot be enrolled in two institutions concurrently.
A student is placed on academic warning when the Grade Point Average gets below a 2.00. The warning is indicated at the end of the grade report every semester until the GPA is above a 2.00. Academic Warning indicates that the student may also go on suspension from Auburn if the Grade Point Average continues to drop. If the student has any questions about warning or needs any assistance with finding help, please see an advisor.
To change a major within the CADC, students must see an advisor to get the correct information on transfer credits and courses needed. For Architecture and Building Science, the student must have a 2.8 GPA to transfer. To change majors out of the College, the student must obtain their folder from Student Services along with a “Change of Major” form to take to their new college.
Students can request and receive transcripts from the Office of Admissions and Records, located at 100 Mary Martin Hall. Official transcripts are mailed to the designated person or institution. Request transcript.
Classification is important because it determines the student’s registration times. Also, certain classes are only open to students with a specific class standing. It may determine a scholarship, professional fee, or housing.
Classification refers to a student’s class standing:
Senior (SR) 91 or more semester hours
Junior (JR) 61-90 semester hours
Sophomore (SO) 31-60 semester hours
Freshman (FR) 30 or fewer semester hours
A student may add a course online until the first day of class. After that, the student has to get school approval. A student may drop a course online through the 15th class day (fifth class day for summer semester) without a penalty. After the 15th class day, a student has until mid-semester to drop receiving a grade of W. Courses cannot be dropped after mid-semester without approval from the Associate Dean. Documentation must be provided.
A Hold on the record will mean the student will not be able to add or drop a class, receive a transcript, get student housing or receive Financial Aid.
Here are some offices who may place a Hold and why:
If the advisor needs to see the student. Some schools place a Hold on all students prior to registration, and lift the Hold only after the student meets with an advisor. CADC advisors do not routinely place Holds.
If a student has an unpaid bill.
If the student has an unpaid balance, discrepancies with their insurance, or fails to return a completed health form to the Auburn Medical Clinic.
Students returning to school from suspension
To receive a graduation check, please see an advisor. Also, a diploma application must be completed before graduation.
To drop all courses or to resign, the student must contact Student Services and complete a “Resignation Form”.
For Architecture and Industrial Design, all studio grades are classified as design or major GPA. For Building Construction, all BSCI courses along with the business courses in the third and fourth years are classified as the major GPA. To find out the design GPA or major GPA, please see an advisor.
Scholarships are only given in Spring semester for the next academic year. Scholarship applications are available through each school office.
To become an Architecture student, the student may apply to be in the Foundation Unit Studio (by filling out and mailing the First Year Program Studio Placement Questionnaire), or he or she must be accepted into the Summer Design Program. The requirements for acceptance to Summer Design include a 2.8 GPA, Calculus I, Physics I and 27 semester hours for AU students and transfer students. Auburn students must also complete the ARCH 1000 course. For more information, please contact an advisor.
To be classified as a Building Construction student, the student must apply in Student Services for acceptance. The student must apply and be accepted into the professional program. See advisor for details.
