Freshman Students at LAU
Freshmen students currently enrolled at LAU may apply to declare a major in any of the SArD majors, after completing the Freshmen Requirements [see University Admissions Policy], provided they satisfy the specific requirements for each major. Students who have totally completed the Freshmen program requirements have to submit a petition to declare their major.
Freshmen Students seeking to enter into the Architecture major must be enrolled as Freshmen Science and should complete MTH 101, MTH 102 and PHY 111 with a minimum grade of C+ in each, and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00.
Freshman Art students seeking to enter into Architecture may apply on condition that they have completed the Math and Physics Freshman Science requirements during their Freshmen year [prior to joining the program] with a minimum grade of C+ in each, and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
Students seeking to enter in Interior Architecture, Interior Design, Fashion Design, Graphic Design or Fine Arts may complete either Freshmen Arts or Freshmen Science programs, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50.
NOTE: Approval of Declaration of Major petitions is NOT guaranteed if the student has fulfilled the requirements, but will depend on the availability of openings in the desired major [if the class sections at the appropriate level are full, the application may NOT be accepted]
