Students in all degree programs are required to make satisfactory progress toward their degree. Satisfactory Educational Progress has two components, academic and practice, with the exact terms defined by the program in which a student is enrolled.
Academic: A student must maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) and a cumulative Studio GPA (SGPA), which meet the degree requirements for his/her program.
- BArch, BID, and BLA - 2.5
- BDS - 2.0 cumulative; 2.5 in area of concentration (no SGPA requirement)
- MArch, MID, and MLA - 2.5 (Segment I); 2.7 (Segment 2 and thereafter)
- MDS - 2.70 cumulative (no SGPA requirement)
If either of a student's cumulative grade point averages fall below the program minimum required, the student will be placed on academic probation and be required to sign a probation contact, also known as a Contract for Educational Progress (CEP).
Practice: A student must accrue practice credits to progress through the BAC. Once concurrent, a student not collecting these credits (or accruing them at an insufficient pace) can be considered Practice Non-compliant. While students are not required to sign a non-compliance contract, they are expected to take immediate, and appropriate, steps to remedy their situation.
Satisfactory Educational Progress is checked at the end of every semester. Academic Advising and/or Practice issue letters informing students who are not in good standing. Educational sanctions and registration limits can be imposed on students not making sufficient educational progress.
