Academic Standards for Interior Architecture Major

Admission to IA professional sequence is based upon the following:

  1. Pass the IA Professional Sequence Admission and/or Transfer Reviews. Results of the review are valid only for the subsequent semester. To qualify for the review, you must have successfully completed or be concurrently enrolled in ART 103 ; IA 101 , IA 104 IA 201 , IA 204 , and IA 217 .
  2. A minimum of 2.75 GPA in ART 103 ; IA 101 , IA 104 , IA 201 , IA 204 , and IA 217 .  If your GPA in these courses is 2.50 - 2.74 and/or you have not passed the first year review, or you are admitted to the IA professional sequence on probation, you may request in writing to submit revised work from these courses for reconsideration for admission.
  3. If you are admitted on probationary status, ongoing enrollment in the IA course sequence will be determined by an additional portfolio and GPA review.
  4. If it is necessary to limit the number of students admitted to the professional sequence and the portfolios are determined to be of equal quality, the student with the higher cumulative GPA by the end of the first year will be admitted.

To graduate with a major in interior architecture you must undergo a senior portfolio review and show. You must also have a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA in all courses required for the major, including transfer courses, regardless of any declaration of academic bankruptcy. You may repeat a course in the major if you follow the course repeat policy found in the Repeating Courses  section of this catalog.

Test-Out, Credit-by-Exam, Transfer Policy for Interior Architecture

The Division of Interior Architecture will offer credit-by-exam for the following GEP courses: IA 120 , IA 130 , IA 150 , and IA 160 . Material normally covered in the courses forms the basis of the comprehensive written exams.

If you wish to take an exam for credit, first confer with the IA division head. Then meet with the faculty member who most recently taught the course who will, prior to administering the exam, inform you in writing of the required minimum passing score. The results will be provided in writing within two weeks of taking the exam. You may take an exam for credit only once for each course.

In order to transfer art or design credits from other institutions, you must submit a portfolio of previous work and grade transcripts. Acceptance of transfer credit depends on successful portfolio evaluation and placement.

If you wish to transfer into the interior architecture major through an approved articulation agreement with another institution, you must successfully meet the requirements as put forth in the agreement and must successfully pass an IA Sequence Transfer Review as described under Academic Standards for Interior Architecture Major. Contact the Division of Interior Architecture to make arrangements for participating in the IA Professional Sequence Transfer Review.
