Supplemental Scholastic Standards

Accreditation and space restrictions necessitate that the number of students in the Program of Landscape Architecture be limited. All students choosing the landscape architecture major will be evaluated after they have taken introductory landscape architecture courses LAND 2110 and 2210. Minimum requirements for continuance in the Program of Landscape Architecture are a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better and a grade of 3.0 (B) or better in both introductory courses. For students meeting these requirements, faculty evaluation of a portfolio of work produced in introductory courses, student essay and GPA will determine final acceptance into the Program.

Thereafter students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better, and must earn grades of 2.7 (B-) or better for all major (LAND) courses. Students who receive more than one grade below 2.7 (B-) in major (LAND) courses may be dismissed from the major. Courses may be retaken if space allows, with permission of the instructor, but no course in the Program of Landscape Architecture may be repeated more than once (for a total of two times).

Students successfully completing these courses will have met their general education exit requirements for information literacy.

Landscape Architecture majors must take LAND 3230WE to fulfill their requirement for writing in the major.
