Architecture Academic Standards and Policies Enrollment in the second year studios is limited and eligibility for acceptance to Architecture and Interior Architecture is based on performance in courses in the first year of the model curriculum. The Architecture Program offers two options for completing the Pre-Architecture first year of the model curriculum: the Foundation Unit Studio sequence and the Summer Design Studio sequence. Foundation Unit Studio Auburn University students must receive an S in Fall semester ARCH classes to be admitted to Foundation Unit Spring semester studio sequence. Students accepted into the Foundation Unit Studio sequence may not defer their acceptance to another academic year. Students who fail to successfully complete the fall semester studio sequence or students not accepted into the Second Year Studio sequence at the end of the spring semester will not be readmitted to the Foundation Unit Program. These students may elect to participate in the following Summer Design Studio session and will be required to participate in the entire Summer program. Eligibility is dependent upon Summer Design criteria. Summer Design Studio Auburn University students who successfully complete 27 hours, pass ARCH1000, General Physics I, and Calculus I or Math 1150, and achieve a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.80 are eligible to be accepted into Summer Design Studio. In the event that all available Summer Design seats are not filled based on the stated criteria, the committee may opt to fill the remaining seats based on academic performance of the applicants. Summer Design Studio sequence is divided into two sessions. During the course of the first session, each student’s work is periodically ranked relative to her/his peers. At the end of the first session, the students with the highest rank-in-class are accepted into session two, subject to available space. Students not accepted to the Second Year Studio may elect to retake the entire sequence of courses during the following Summer Design Session if they meet the admission criteria or they may elect to change majors. Admission to the Second Year Studio sequence is predicated on the receipt of a grade of C or better in both ARCH 1020 and ARCH 1420. The Grade Adjustment Policy may not be used to progress to Second Year Studio.
