Current curriculum models in each of the degree programs offered by the College of Architecture, Design and Construction may be obtained from Student Services. A copy of each curriculum model is included in this manual. The curriculum models are regularly reviewed by the faculty for possible changes intended to strengthen and improve the quality of the programs. Curriculum changes are reviewed and approved at the department, college, and university levels. All advising criteria for new requirements are maintained in Student Services.
When the University changes a curriculum model, a student in the altered curriculum may be required to complete the subjects and hours placed after the level to which they progressed. The student will not, however, be required to complete additional subjects placed in the curriculum below the level they have achieved. Courses shifted from one class level to another are exempt from this latter provision. The student’s dean will determine the revised subject requirements, and the provost will determine the revised total hours and grade point requirements.
Any student enrolled in the CADC who terminates enrollment after being placed on academic suspension or academic probation, or who resigns from school without departmental approval and intends to re-enter the department/school must, in addition to complying with other University readmission requirements, consult with Student Services for readmission procedures.
Each semester, CADC Student Services receives a printout of scholarship athletes in CADC, and the staff verifies the coursework for the athletes’ academic progress toward their degree. The NCAA has established strict guidelines requiring compliance by the athlete. Questions regarding student athletes should be referred to Tammie Gourdouze, CADC Academic Advisor.
Students who desire to change their major to another major within CADC must have the GPA to do so and meet other admission criteria by program. Students should speak with an advisor for information on credits that may transfer to the other major. NOTE: A student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.80 or better to change their major to Pre-Architecture where applicable. Pre-Building Science requires an ungapped GPA of 2.60 for internal transfers. Students requesting to change their major to one in another school or college should come to Student Services, pick up their academic records and transport them to the new school or college advising office. It is important to note that any new curricula that students want to change to may have a different minimum GPA requirement and/or other admission requirements.
