Visual Communication Design Program Policies

Students must earn a minimum GPA of 3.00 in the major, and the lowest acceptable grade is a "C" in all ART, IS, MOGR, PHOTO, and VCD courses. Please see the specific program requirements for a listing of the required courses. To remain in the major, students must demonstrate a sustained level of satisfactory performance, as determined by periodic evaluations outlined in the Art Standard below. The Art Standard is distributed to all new students during the First-Year Seminar.

No student, regardless of major, will be permitted to take an art or visual communication design course unless he or she earns a grade of "C" or better in all prerequisite courses.
