Policy on Admission, Review, and Retention: Second Year Review
Fall Semester Checkpoint
Upon completing the coursework for INDD 284, students must receive a grade of a “C” (2.0) or higher to continue in the spring semester courses. Students at the “C” level are considered borderline. Students who met the Fall Semester Checkpoint requirements will be enrolled in the spring semester, INDD 302: Intermediate Industrial Design.
A grade of “C-“ or below automatically eliminates the student from proceeding into the major and from continuing on to the spring semester. Students that fall into this category do not have the option of repeating the INDD course work and need to transfer to another major.
Spring Semester Full Review
After completing the spring semester coursework INDD 302: Intermediate Industrial Design students must receive a minimum grade of a “C+” (2.3) and participate in a portfolio review of all course content.
A grade of “C” or below automatically eliminates the student from proceeding into the major. Students that fall into this category do not have the option of repeating any INDD course work and need to transfer to another major.
The Portfolio Review is of all projects produced in both the fall and spring semesters in Industrial Design courses: INDD 212, INDD 284 and INDD 302. The Industrial Design faculty use this review to determine if the students’ work is at an above satisfactory level. Supplemental to the grade portion of the Portfolio Review, students are also evaluated on attendance, work habits, attitude, and the ability to listen and learn from constructive criticism.
