To be considered for admission into the professional Building Science program (BSCI), the student must have completed all Pre-Building Science course work shown in the first two years of the BSCI model curriculum, and must have successfully completed a minimum of 63 semester hours. The school reserves the right to limit enrollment in the professional program (BSCI) based on calculated GPA and on available resources. It is possible to have less than the available number of positions filled if applicants do not have a 2.60 formula GPA.
For the fall and summer semesters, thirty students are chosen in rank order based upon the formula GPA calculation described in the Building Science Academic Standards and based upon a minimum 2.60 formula GPA. Exceptions to this minimum GPA are only available through the school head, and shall be only considered with extenuating circumstances. Please see a CADC advisor for a full copy of the BSCI Academic Standards. Repeat applicants will be evaluated based upon grades received in all twenty courses that comprise the Pre-Building Science curriculum.
For the spring semester, sixty students are chosen in rank order based upon the formula GPA calculation described in the Building Science Academic Standards and based upon a minimum 2.60 formula GPA. Repeat applicants are evaluated based upon grades received in all twenty courses that compose the Pre-Building Science curriculum. No preference will be given to either first-time or repeat applicants.
After being admitted into the professional program, any student receiving a grade below C in any 3000- or 4000-level BSCI course, or any student whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.50, will be reviewed by the School Academic Standards Committee for approval to continue in the program. Any student who is reviewed may be required to repeat a course or to withdraw from the program.
