    *Portfolio Evaluation: A successful portfolio evaluation is required. The portfolio evaluation takes place at the beginning of semester six, after the student has gained credit in VSAR-1050, VSAR-1070, VSAR-1080, ARHS-1500, VABE-1100, VABE-1200, VABE-2300/ARCH1300, VABE-2400/ARCH1400, VABE-3100/ARCH2100, and is enrolled in VABE-3200/ARCH2200.

    Those students seeking to pursue a BSc in Architecture from the UDM after their third year are encouraged to consult a VABE Advisor on what courses are transferable. Students who opt to graduate after year 3 and enter the UDM BSc program will receive a BA in Visual Arts. For these students, the VA studio course requirements in the BA will be replaced by the architecture studio courses taken at UDM. Acceptable substitutes for BA requirements INCS-2020 and INCS-2030 will include any two Social Sciences courses taken under the option requirements for the VABE program.
