This curriculum represents the maximum number of credits per semester for which a student is advised to register.  A full-time credit load is 12 credits.  First-year students are placed in a curriculum that positions them for success which may result in additional time needed to complete curriculum requirements. Continuing students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the appropriate credit load. 

Students interested in pursuing graduate studies in Architecture (either at NJIT or elsewhere) are strongly advised to take the calculus math sequence (MATH 113 Finite Mathematics and Calculus I, and MATH 114 Finite Mathematics and Calculus II), and one additional Physics course and corresponding lab (PHYS 103 General Physics/PHYS 103A General Physics Laboratory). Students should consult admissions requirements for any program and/or institution they are considering.

The minimum credit requirement for graduation is the successful completion of 128 credits of prescribed courses within the curriculum and the maintenance of a 2.0 average. Students are required to maintain a 2.0 cumulative studio average to advance to each succeeding year.
