Academic Standards for Interior Architecture Major 

Admission to IA Professional Sequence is based upon the following:

  1. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 in DSN 101 ; IA 101 , IA 104 , IA 201 , and IA 204  is required to submit for the review.
  2. To submit for the review, you must have successfully completed or be concurrently enrolled in DSN 101 ; IA 101 , IA 104 , IA 201 , IA 204 , IA 217 , and IA 304 .
  3. To pass the review, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 in DSN 101 ; IA 101 , IA 104 , IA 201 , IA 204 , IA 217 , and IA 304  is required.
  4. If a cumulative GPA in the above courses is between 2.50 - 2.749, you will be placed on probation. If placed on probationary status, ongoing enrollment in the IA professional sequence will be determined by an additional portfolio and GPA review.
  5. If you have not passed the first year review or have been placed on probation and wish to submit for an additional portfolio review, you must request in writing to re-submit work from these courses for reconsideration.
  6. Results of the review are valid only for the subsequent semester.
  7. 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, students with higher cumulative GPAs will be admitted.

Additional Professional Sequence Criteria:

You must have a laptop computer for use by the start of your third semester of the IA program. Laptops must meet the minimum requirements put forth by the Interior Architecture program. Refer to the IA website for specific information.

Senior Portfolio Review:

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 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 and Credit-by-Exam 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.

Transfer Policy for Interior Architecture:

In order to transfer art or design credits from other institutions, you must submit a portfolio of previous work and grade transcripts, syllabi, and requested supporting course documentation. 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.  Contact the Division of Interior Architecture to make any credit transfer requests.
