Students in all degree programs are required to make Satisfactory Educational 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) or major/concentration GPA, which meet the degree requirements for her/his program.
- BArch, BID, and BLA: 2.5 GPA and SGPA
- BDS: 2.0 GPA; 2.5 major/concentration GPA
- MArch, MID, and MLA: 2.7 GPA and SGPA
- MDS: 2.7 GPA
If either of a student's grade point averages falls below the program minimum requirement the student will be placed on academic probation and be required to sign a probation contract.
Students must also successfully complete each course at a satisfactory rate. If a student withdraws and/or fails the same course two or more times, s/he will be placed on academic probation. The student will be required to sign a CEP and may also be required to meet with her/his program Head before being permitted to attempt that course again.
Practice: A student must accrue practice hours to progress through the BAC. Once concurrent, a student who is not accumulating these hours (or accruing them at an insufficient pace) can be considered Practice Non-compliant. More information can be found on the Practice website.
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.
