Attendance at classes, laboratories, studios, and seminars is required. If excessive absences are noted in a particular course, the student will be notified in person and by letter that he or she will be administratively withdrawn if further unexcused absences are noted. If further absences occur after notification, the student will be withdrawn from the course and the program.
All lower-division design studios must be taken in sequence. With the consent of instructor and program advisor, an upper-division student in one design program may substitute one upper-division studio in another design program, except that students in the Architecture program may substitute another upper-division studio for AAE 482 only.
The School of Architecture reserves the right to retain, photograph, or record any or all student projects for the program’s future use or publication.
Courses in the School of Architecture are graded with a letter grade with pluses and minuses. Grades received from UNLV or other institutions are also evaluated for letter grades only in determining grade point averages for admission to the program’s upper division.
Upper-division students in the School of Architecture design programs are required to complete a 200-hour internship with a professional design firm.
Because the school’s upper-division programs are sequential, and space in the program is limited, students are encouraged to progress through the curriculum with their class.
All students are required to have a laptop computer by the beginning of their second year of enrollment in the School of Architecture program. A recommended list of laptop configurations and program software is available from the School of Architecture front office and the School of Architecture website.
