** Students in Landscape Architecture fulfill the foundational mathematics requirement by (1) completing MA 15800 or higher or (2) completing STAT 30100. Enrolling in STAT 30100 requires either successfully completing MA 15300 and MA 15400 or taking the advanced credit examination for MA 15300 and MA 15400 to establish competency.

Consultation with an advisor may result in an altered plan customized for an individual student.
Change of Option from Pre-landscape Architecture to the Professional Landscape Architecture Program
Pre-landscape architecture students, who wish to continue into the landscape architecture professional program, or transfer students from other institutions, must qualify by meeting the following criteria, or through further assessment as described below:
1. Overall GPA - The student must be in good academic standing. A minimum overall GPA of 2.5 across all Purdue and transferred credit coursework is necessary for acceptance into the landscape architecture professional program.
2. Grade point average of 3.0 or higher in all landscape architecture prefixed courses taken (LA Index).
3. Completion of LA 10600; or 11600 and 21600; or approved equivalent, and a minimum of 24 credit hours of Purdue accepted college level coursework are the minimum necessary for acceptance into the landscape architecture professional program.
The ♦ course is considered critical.
In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major. Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful. These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
