Colleges  > Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design  > Scholastic Requirements: College of Architecture and Design

In addition to maintaining a cumulative grade point average at or above the minimum of 3.0, graduate students are normally expected to complete all course requirements, or the approved equivalents, in each term of each level before proceeding to the next term of the design studio sequence.  Deviations from the normal course sequence must be approved by the Director of Graduate Studies.

Students who do not maintain satisfactory academic progress are at risk of being placed on academic probation for up to two consecutive terms, and termination from the graduate program.

In addition, the University of Houston and the College of Architecture and Design require that graduate students in the College of Architecture and Design maintain the following standard with respect to grades of C+ or lower:

  • For Master of Science and Master of Arts entrants, a maximum of 12 hours of grades of C+ or lower are allowed.
  • For Level II Master of Architecture entrants, a maximum of 12 hours of grades of C+ or lower are allowed.
  • For Level I Master of Architecture entrants, a maximum of 12 hours of grades of C+ or lower are allowed.

Any student exceeding these limits will be dropped from the program and will not be allowed to re-enroll for a graduate degree at the University of Houston.
