COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGNGRADUATE HANDBOOKDraft Updated: August 2014Page 7This 3.5 year degree path is open to students having successfullycompleted an undergraduate degree prior to matriculation, principallyfrom non-design backgrounds.Master of Architecture (M. Arch) Advanced StandingThe M. Arch. Advance Placement curricular path is appropriate forstudents with a four-year pre-professional degree in architecture (B.A.,B.S., etc.). The Master of Architecture Advanced Placement (M. Arch AP)requires a minimum of 60 semester hours of graduate coursework, takingapproximately two years of full-time study. A concentration within theprogram is optional. Thesis is optional.Students with a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Architecturecan petition for course waivers in the M.

Thesis candidates have two opportunities to defend their thesis. Thetwo attempts are not limited to a single academic year. The precisetiming of one’s defense is a matter for consultation with one’s thesisadvisor and committee. However, the decision of when a defensetakes place rests solely with the thesis candidate.

Students are encouraged to meet with the facultywho teach the course or courses in questions to discuss their coursewaiver. All submitted work/syllabi will remain on file for review byGraduate Program committee members and the NAAB.COURSE POLICIES AND PROGRESSION REQUIREMENTSRepeatability of CoursesIn general, graduate students are not permitted to repeat courses forcredit toward graduate requirements, but for the following instances.Graduate students are allowed to repeat different versions of the specialtopics classes (ARC 525; LAR 525) and they may enroll repeatedly inindependent study courses that are distinct in content (ARC 593; LAR 593).Finally, a student can register for the course entitled Thesis (ARC 500; LAR500) for up to 15 credits under this course designation throughout theiracademic career. Normally, a graduate student registers for 6 credits ofThesis (500) during the semester in which the thesis is to be submitted. Agraduate student must register for at least 3 credits of Thesis (500) duringthe semester in which the thesis is submitted. Only 6 credits of Thesis (500)
