Course Category: Interior Design Option
Related Degree: Bachelor of Science- Family and Consumer Sciences


A grade below "C" represents work of insufficient quality, not adequate to pursue subsequent courses.  For this reason, a student making a "D" or "F" grade in a required course will not be permitted to continue in the Family and Consumer Sciences Interior Design Option.  If it can be demonstrated that the "D" or "F" grade is the result of a temporary problem which has been corrected, the student may be readmitted with the approval of faculty.  The below “C” grade in Interior Design is intended for option requirements only, not major core.
