Our program is well-known and respected by Design professionals for its rigor. We require that students maintain certain academic and professional standards, which are outlined on this page. Tabs linked on the left side of this page include details of our minimum grade requirements for Major Studies studios and transfer work, specific professional standards, and our department's policy on academic and creative integrity.
In tandem with resources and support services at the university level, our department works to intentionally support our students in their pursuit of these standards. That said, students should be mindful that they are ultimately responsible for seeking support when needed and are responsible for the consequences of their actions should they fail to meet the standards of our program. Our department's probation policy is also linked on the left side of this page.
